Attributes of Garden Statues in Archaic Greece

The primitive Greeks built the 1st freestanding statuary, an amazing achievement as most sculptures up until then had been reliefs cut into walls and pillars. Kouros figures, statues of young, attractive male or female (kore) Greeks, made up the majority of the sculptures. Thought of by Greeks to characterize splendour, the kouroi were shaped into firm, forward facing poses with one foot outstretched, and the male statues were always nude, muscular, and fit. In about 650 BC, the differences of the kouroi became life-sized. The Archaic period was turbulent for the Greeks as they evolved into more polished forms of government and art, and obtained more information and facts about the peoples and civilizations outside of Greece. But in spite of the issues, the Greek civilization continued to progress, unabated.Back Story Outdoor Water Fountains 473574930004035.jpg

Back Story of Outdoor Water Fountains

The translation of hundreds of ancient Greek documents into Latin was commissioned by the scholarly Pope Nicholas V who led the Church in Rome from 1397 till 1455. In order to make Rome deserving of being the capital of the Christian world, the Pope resolved to enhance the beauty of the city. Beginning in 1453, the ruined ancient Roman aqueduct known as the Aqua Vergine which had brought fresh drinking water into the city from eight miles away, underwent repair at the behest of the Pope. The ancient Roman custom of building an imposing commemorative fountain at the point where an aqueduct arrived, also known as a mostra, was resurrected by Nicholas V. At the bidding of the Pope, architect Leon Battista Alberti began the construction of a wall fountain in the spot where we now find the Trevi Fountain. The aqueduct he had reconditioned included modifications and extensions which eventually allowed it to supply water to the Trevi Fountain as well as the famed baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Navona.
