|D55 30500||12 hours|
Greek sculpture inspired the sculptors of the Renaissance. Ancient Greek sculptors’ love of athletics fuelled their studies of anatomy in search of the ideal human body. Heroes and incidents drawn from Greek mythology demanded flexibility of movement in anatomy and drapery, and emotion as portrayed in pose and facial expression. Portraits and studies of age and occupations all reflected the variety in ancient society.
