Statues As a Staple of Vintage Art in Ancient Greece

Statues As a Staple of Vintage Art in Ancient Greece Up until the Archaic Greeks created the first freestanding sculpture, a phenomenal success, carvings had largely been completed in 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. Symbolizing beauty to the Greeks, the kouroi were created to look stiff and always had foot forward; the males were healthy, powerful, and naked. In about 650 BC, the differences of the kouroi became life-sized. The Archaic period was an extraordinary point of transformation for the Greeks as they grew into new modes of government, formed unique expressions of art, and achieved knowledge of the people and cultures outside of Greece. The Arcadian conflicts, the Spartan invasion of Samos, and other wars between city-states are examples of the types of clashes that occurred commonly, which is consistent with other times of historical transformation.

Renaissance landscapes of the later part of the 16th century happened to be home to works such as music water features, scenographic water presentations and water caprices (giochi d’acqua), but these weren’t outfitted with water in ways that defied the force of gravity itself.
