The biggest similarity between both sculptures is the delicate detail provided to the both figures. The big muscles, tilted brow and the beaten up look of ‘Seated Boxer’s’ body shows the nature rule of human figure and the strength of the human body. ‘David’s’ lean and smaller form show the little details of the male form, and ‘David’ is very balance between confidence and strength of male with the arrogant emotional and combined part of male and female (Allen, 2014). In both the Hellenistic and early Italian Renaissance periods; the human form became a study for artists and sculptors, because of the difficulty in accurate to recreate it, so that the perfection becomes a goal to achieve by the time. Furthermore, the Greeks also find a fact that successful sculptures are those pieces that actually could imply the religion and show strength of men in both physically and mentally.
The notorious Greek sculptor Polykleitos designed a sculptural work as a demonstration of his written treatise, entitled the Canon. This Canon was an example of what he considered to be the perfect, harmonious, and balanced proportions of the human body in the sculpted form. His canon was a theoretical work that was based on ideal mathematical proportions. Polykleitos was obsessed with the male figure and was determined to get the proportions correct, which he wound up doing. His sculpture, Doryphoros, featured chiastic and contrapposto in order to contribute naturalism to the image.

He is tested and used a goat to get his way out by outsmarting Hercules.

Statue I displays the subject as a man of remarkable duration in action; the seemingly impossible biological conflict between his young body and mature head shows a successful man that desires to present his lasting legacy of experience and wealth. The body of the Statue forms most of the sculpture and therefore is significant in its execution of symmetry, motion, and style as a means to display the subject as a man of action. Adapted from the Doryphoros of Polykleitos, this piece uses the contrapposto scheme in the symmetrical planes of the joints to convey realistic motion. Like Doryphoros, the system of contrasting joint pairs which traverse the vertical line of symmetry all stem from the right leg that bears his weight.
This life-size marble figure of Aphrodite in a contrapposto position stands on a black cube, and is about four feet tall. The figure is clearly a Greek-inspired nude female as you can see her smooth feminine features and the accentuated attention the was given to detail. Despite originating from Rome, the style of this piece was taken from the late Hellenistic Greek period as it replicates the work of sculpture Praxiteles from fourth century B.C. Observing the piece, one of the first things noticed is Aphrodite’s position. She is leaning right, with the weight bearing on the right leg. The left leg leans slightly against the right, knee bent.

At the same time, they are quite different: Frodo is physically weak, and mentally strong, while the Greek heroes are very strong physically and don’t show much mental strength. Although Frodo and the Greek heroes are not similar in all, or even most aspects, they are each heroes. Heroism is relative: what is heroic in one culture may be looked down upon in another. Frodo exhibits heroism in his sacrifice for the greater good, while the Greeks earned the title through the amazing deeds they did. One is no more heroic than the other.
“It is often quoted that, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, like the beauty in the reclining female nude ‘Titian’ (1485-1576) or the heroic ‘David’ by Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564). They are more than sum of their parts; they reflect very specific notions of beauty. We find more than pearly ‘flesh’ in Titian.

In the poem called Works and Days, written by an ancient Greek poet Hesiod, a god named Prometheus gives mankind the gift of fire without the consent of Zeus.
