Animals and Backyard Fountains

Thought of by Greeks to represent beauty, the kouroi were shaped into stiff, forward facing positions with one foot outstretched, and the male statues were always nude, well-built, and fit. In 650 BC, life-size forms of the kouroi began to be observed. During the Archaic time, a big time of change, the Greeks were developing new sorts of government, expressions of art, and a deeper comprehension of people and cultures outside Greece. The Arcadian wars, the Spartan invasion of Samos, and other wars between city-states are examples of the sorts of clashes that arose commonly, which is consistent with other times of historical transformation.
