Statues As a Staple of Classic Art in Archaic Greece

Statues As a Staple of Classic Art in Archaic GreeceStatues Staple Classic Art Archaic Greece 89395213059140800.jpg The Archaic Greeks developed the very first freestanding statuary, an impressive achievement as most sculptures up until then had been reliefs cut into walls and pillars. For the most part the statues, or kouros figures, were of young and desirable male or female (kore) Greeks. The kouroi, regarded by the Greeks to represent beauty, had one foot extended out of a rigid forward-facing pose and the male statues were regularly nude, with a powerful, sturdy shape. In around 650 BC, the differences of the kouroi became life-sized. During the Archaic time, a great time of change, the Greeks were developing new forms of government, expressions of art, and a greater awareness of people and cultures outside Greece. The Arcadian battles, the Spartan penetration of Samos, and other wars between city-states are examples of the kinds of battles that arose frequently, which is consistent with other times of historical transformation.
