Greek Statues: The Classic Forms of Kourous, Kritios Boy, and Discobolus

Susan Parker has written a comparative discussion of three famous Greek statues, providing not only beauty, but insight into the culture of the time in which they were created.Thousands of years after they were carved and fashioned, careful attention to the figures of ancient Greek statues continue to provide clues about the culture existent during the time period of their creation.

Three particular works of art, “Kouros”, “Kritios Boy” and “Discobolos”, believed to have been carved over a time span of approximately 150 years, give an indication of changes in not only the skills of artisans, but also the values of the societies for which the artworks were created.
