Architectural Statuary in Ancient Greece

Architectural Statuary in Ancient Greece Traditionally, most sculptors were compensated by the temples to adorn the involved pillars and archways with renderings of the gods, however as the era came to a close it grew to be more common for sculptors to present ordinary people as well because many Greeks had begun to think of their institution as superstitious rather than sacred. In some cases, a depiction of wealthy families' forefathers would be commissioned to be placed inside of huge familial tombs, and portraiture, which would be replicated by the Romans upon their conquest of Greek civilization, also became customary. The usage of sculpture and other art forms varied over the many years of The Greek Classical period, a time of artistic progress when the arts had more than one goal. Whether to fulfill a visual craving or to celebrate the figures of religion, Greek sculpture was an innovative approach in the ancient world, which may be what draws our focus today.

The oldest stone basins are believed to be from about 2000 BC. The first fountains used in ancient civilizations relied on gravity to control the flow of water through the fountain. Drinking water was provided by public fountains, long before fountains became ornate public monuments, as attractive as they are functional. Fountains with embellished Gods, mythological beasts, and animals began to show up in Rome in about 6 BC, built from natural stone and bronze. The people of Rome had an intricate system of aqueducts that provided the water for the numerous fountains that were placed throughout the urban center.
