"Primitive" Greek Artistry: Garden Statuary

"Primitive" Greek Artistry: Garden Statuary The first freestanding statuary was developed by the Archaic Greeks, a notable achievement since until then the sole carvings in existence were 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 represent beauty, had one foot extended out of a fixed forward-facing pose and the male figurines were always nude, with a strong, sturdy physique. In 650 BC, life-size versions of the kouroi began to be observed. A significant age of transformation for the Greeks, the Archaic period introduced about more forms of government, expressions of art, and a higher comprehension of people and customs outside of Greece. The Arcadian battles, the Spartan invasion of Samos, and other wars between city-states are good examples of the sorts of battles that emerged frequently, which is consistent with other times of historical transformation.
