The Father Of Rome's Water Fountain Design And Style

The Father Of Rome's Water Fountain Design And Style There are many renowned Roman water features in its city center. One of the best ever sculptors and designers of the 17th century, Gian Lorenzo Bernini fashioned, conceptualized and built almost all of them. Marks of his life's work are apparent all through the roads of Rome simply because, in addition to his skills as a fountain creator, he was also a city architect. A renowned Florentine sculptor, Bernini's father mentored his young son, and they eventually moved to Rome to totally exhibit their artwork, mainly in the form of community water features and water features.Father  Rome's  Water Fountain   Design Style 689552674596225.jpg The juvenile Bernini was an exemplary employee and won praise and backing of important artists as well as popes.

Characteristics of Outdoor Statuary in Archaic Greece

Characteristics Outdoor Statuary Archaic Greece 724000409241.jpg Characteristics of Outdoor Statuary in Archaic Greece Archaic Greeks were known for creating the first freestanding statuary; up until then, most carvings were made out of walls and pillars as reliefs. Most of these freestanding sculptures were what is known as kouros figures, statues of young, attractive male or female (kore) Greeks. The kouroi were considered by the Greeks to embody beauty and were sculpted with one foot leading and an uncompromising firmness to their forward-facing poses; the male statues were always strapping, brawny, and naked. In 650 BC, life-sized versions of the kouroi began to be observed. Throughout the Archaic period, a big time of change, the Greeks were developing new sorts of government, expressions of art, and a deeper awareness of people and cultures outside Greece. During this time and other durations of historical tumultuousness, encounters often took place, most notably wars fought amongst city-states such as the Arcadian wars and the Spartan invasion of Samos.

Hydro-Statics & Public Fountains: An Overview

Hydro-Statics & Public Fountains: An Overview Liquid in a state of equilibrium exerts pressure on the objects it contacts, including its container. There are two types of force, hydrostatic energies and external forces. When pushing against a level wall, the fluid applies equal force at various points on the wall. An object that’s wholly submerged in a fluid that’s in equilibrium experiences vertical force on all points of its body. These vertical forces are buoyancy, and the concept on its own is more fully explained by Archimedes’principle. Generally, hydrostatic pressure on a point of liquid is a product of the hydrostatic force applied on it. A city’s water supply system, fountains, and artesian wells are all good examples of the application of these principles on containers.
