Inspired by Cody's post of the pugilist statue, this thread is for our favorite works of ancient Greek art. What's your fave and why? Favorite medium or period? Post a picture and discuss!
I'm not familiar with this one... where was it found, when does it date to? Where is it now?
The horse's face is an awesome display of emotion and musculature. I'd like to see that part closer. But the combination with the child seems almost comical!
This one's interesting, Cody.
so we're only doing ones where a picture is relevant. Aristotle's Physics doesn't count?
I'll have to think then.
Create a new thread for literature, or on Aristotle or just that work itself!
Better yet, post a translation challenge from the Physics...
I don't even know the alphabeta, so I couldn't judge a translation.
Still! You could have fooled us if you didn't say anything.
I've never read the physics... maybe I will and I'll pick out a passage.
