Sculptures influenced by Ancient Greece

Although the art of ancient Greece still shapes our idea of what art should look like, classical Greek art itself was a product of many influences.

The legacy of cultures pre-dating the Greeks can be seen in early statues. Stone figures called kouroi – or youths – were common. With their rigid stature and heavily stylised sense of human anatomy, they displayed the influence of the ancient Egyptians. Over the following centuries Greek artists would develop their own style – one that strove to capture the human body in as lifelike a form as possible.
