Attributes of Outdoor Sculpture in Archaic Greece

Attributes of Outdoor Sculpture in Archaic Greece The Archaic Greeks developed the 1st freestanding statuary, an impressive achievement as most sculptures up until then had been reliefs cut into walls and pillars. Most of these freestanding sculptures were what is known as kouros figures, statues of young, attractive male or female (kore) Greeks. The kouroi, viewed by the Greeks to exemplify beauty, had one foot stretched out of a fixed forward-facing posture and the male figurines were always unclothed, with a powerful, strong physique. In 650 BC, life-sized models of the kouroi began to be seen. The Archaic period was an amazing point of change for the Greeks as they grew into new forms of government, formed novel expressions of art, and gained knowledge of the men and women and cultures outside of Greece.Attributes Outdoor Sculpture Archaic Greece 6771748343.jpg Throughout this time and other periods of historic tumult, clashes often occurred, most notably battles fought amongst city-states such as the Arcadian wars and the Spartan invasion of Samos.
