Ancient Greek Art and Arcitecture
Transcript of Ancient Greek Art and Arcitecture
By: Ava McDonald #17
Ancient Greeks painted with fine detail and their pottery told stories of battles and gods. The Hellenic people (greek speaking) are most know for their beautiful art. They made beautiful pottery like the one below.
There are three types of columns. They are Ionic, Doric, and Corinthian. Ionic columns have a pair of scrolls at the top. They are the thinnest of the three columns. Doric columns are the plainest because it has no design on the top. The Corinthian column is the fanciest with elaborate "leaves" below a scroll. This is the one that most modern people like best.
The Three Columns
In Ancient Greece the Parthenon was a safe house in the time of danger. Pericles started work on the Parthenon in 447 B.C. and it was finished fifteen years later in 432 B.C. It was built in replacement of two other temples that used to stand on the acropolis which today no trace of the temples are their today.
Ancient Greek sculpture was very realistic and the greek paid attention to fine detail. Every sculpture is different with a different form every time. They concentrated on the perfection of the human body. The Athena statue's foot is the size of us.
