Aspects of Outdoor Statues in Archaic Greece

The first freestanding statuary was improved by the Archaic Greeks, a distinguished achievement since until then the only carvings in existence were reliefs cut into walls and columns. Most of the freestanding statues were of youthful, winsome male or female (kore) Greeks and are referred to as kouros figures. Representing beauty to the Greeks, the kouroi were designed to look stiff and commonly had foot forward; the males were vigorous, strong, and nude. In 650 BC, life-size variations of the kouroi began to be observed. The Archaic period was tumultuous for the Greeks as they progressed into more refined forms of government and art, and acquired more data about the peoples and societies outside of Greece. But in spite of the disputes, the Greek civilization continued to advance, unabated.
