Ancient Greek Art…

(This is where our civilisation came from, we are the descendants, philosophically, artistically and scientifically, of the ancient Greeks, as the Romans mostly copied their civilisation. Not to say that the Romans did not add many more things and were amazing in their own right…in any event, what do you think? Let me know, let us extend the discussion on art…

Cheers

    Not only were the Greeks responsible for European civilization as we know it, they were also great exponents in the world of art.

    Los griegos abrieron el camino los demás seguimos bebiendo de su fuente. Buen domingo.

    I am most attracted to the highly detailed sculptures, but it is all wonderful art and a beautiful representation of the times they lived in.

    Even though much of Greek art was meant to honour the gods, those very gods were created in the image of humans. Such a wonderful collection of amazing art pieces, Francisco

    A fascinating and beautiful trip into Greek art. While I admire the paintings, I stand in awe of the ability to carve such intricate details from stone. A well composed video, Francisco. Thank you for sharing this with us.

    • Yes, I am as well awed by someone’s ability to carve such beautiful works of art from stone…thank you very much Mark and all the best,
