Bernini and Bellori had described the lighting of the Pantheon and Caravaggio’s paintings, respectively, back in the seventeenth century. Whereas, Bernini described the Pantheon lighting as light from above that enhances the beauty of any object or person within the space. On the other hand, Bellori described Caravaggio’s paintings as a great example of chiaroscuro, of which was achieved by using minimal artificial lighting just to expose the central figures and leaving the rest in shadow. Both Bernini and Bellori appreciates the lighting in the spaces and of the objects. This analysis agrees with both Bellori and Bernini with their description of the lighting and personal opinions of the lighting.
The Augustus of Prima Porta also has low-relief, a technique in which a sculpture slightly projects from its background. The low-relief in Augustus of Prima Porta can be found on the breastplate of Augustus. Along with the differences in the sculptures, there are similarities as well. Both sculptures are freestanding, meaning that they can be seen from all angles and can be seen from different viewpoints. A large focus in both sculptures
As any normal comparison, both pieces have similarities that are shared and differences that make them unique. With this thinking, let us examine the statues of Kroisos and Kritios Boy. Kouros sculptures were mainly created during the Archaic era, which was during the years of 700-480 BCE. Unlike other sculptures of this time, the statues are of the modern human being and not of a god or authoritative figure. Two sculptures that were created
The dancing figure could have been made either all by hands, or partly mold-made. Many figurines of later period now had mold-made heads with handmade bodies (Cowgill). On the other hand, small figurines and decorative items made from precious greenstone would require skilled craftsman as well as greater working time and effort, since these were intricately made and well-crafted
This period shows a very large shift from the stiff Archaic to a more realistic and sometimes idealistic portrayal of the human figure. The Hellenistic period 323-31/30 BCE. It is more difficult to see the distinctions between the classical and the Hellenistic period. Bothe periods did the majority of their sculpture as nudes. The Greeks portrayed a young, vigorous and athletic person in
At first glance, it 's easy to see the differences in color as something that sets them apart. On one hand, the statue of Memi and Sabu is made of limestone, therefore it has a natural creamy color. This together with the expression on their faces, creates a welcoming feeling as if to evoke positive actions and goodwill. The embrace could also symbolize friendship, unity, and partnership. An important fact is where the
Free standing statutes were popular to replicate real life. The Egyptians focused more on the power that was eluded off of the statue rather than body. Often squared like in shape and were used to be workshopped rather than realistic copies. Contemporary: Tears down the traditional female nude, more realistic. Alice Neel paints the male in position of Titan using a much bolder approach.
The real question is were the Greeks very democratic? I really do not think the Greeks were democratic at all. They really didn’t exemplify true qualities of a Democratic City-State. The next few paragraphs will show the reason behind my answer, and how people were treated unfairly. My first reason behind this is the Athenian government only granted citizenship to men who parents were free-born Athenian parents.
In the movie Finn was a soldier working for Snoke the leader of the first order, He fought Kylo Ren without any special abilities given by greek gods with royal descent. This shows that Finn is different because he does not have special abilities on like Hercules who is known to be the strongest mortal even stronger than all the greek gods. The force awakens movie ray earned the ability to use the force, although none of the greek heroes earn it they just simply got it through their royal descent of gods. A proof of this is how in the movie they selflessly defended Takodana from the first order. In the other hand, most greek heroes did not earn their powers, but instead they just got it and they abuse it and did other things considered wrong these days such as raping.
