Greece: Architectural Sculpture

Although most sculptors were paid by the temples to embellish the detailed columns and archways with renderings of the gods, as the period came to a close, it became more prevalent for sculptors to portray ordinary people as well mainly because many of Greeks had started to think of their religion as superstitious rather than sacred. Portraiture, which would be recognized by the Romans upon their annexation of Greek civilization became traditional as well, and wealthy family members would often commission a rendering of their forebears to be added in immense familial tombs. A point of artistic development, the use of sculpture and other art forms morphed through the Greek Classical period, so it is inaccurate to assume that the arts provided only one function. Greek sculpture was a cutting-edge component of antiquity, whether the reason was religious fervor or visual fulfillment, and its contemporary quality may be what endears it to us today. pd-198__09100.jpg

Archaic Greek Artwork: Large Statuary

Archaic Greeks were known for developing the first freestanding statuary; up until then, most carvings were formed out of walls and pillars as reliefs. Kouros figures, sculptures of young, handsome male or female (kore) Greeks, made up the bulk of the statues. Thought of by Greeks to embody splendour, the kouroi were shaped into stiff, forward facing positions with one foot outstretched, and the male statues were always nude, well-built, and athletic.

In 650 BC, life-size models of the kouroi began to be observed. The Archaic period was an incredible time of change for the Greeks as they expanded into new modes of government, produced novel expressions of art, and achieved information of the people and cultures outside of Greece. But in spite of the conflicts, the Greek civilization continued to advance, unabated.
