Kritios

Kritios Boy

c. 480 bc

from the Acropolis, Athens

One of the earliest examples of the contraposto pose. "The entire figure seems so alive that the Archaic smile, the "sign of life" is no longer needed. It has given way to a serious expression characteristic of the early phase of Classical sculpture (or, as it is often called, the Severe Style). Once Greek statue was free to move, as it were, it became free to think, not merely to act.

Dying Niobid (nye-O-bid)

c. 450 bc

* The earliest known large female nude in Greek art. In the Niobid, human feeling is for the first time expressed as eloquently in the features as in the rest of the body. What separates the Niobid from the world of archaic art (see dying warrior from Aegina) is summed up in the Greek word pathos. Pathos means suffering, but particulary suffering conveyed with nobility and restraint, so that it touches rather than horrifies us.

Laocoön warned his fellow Trojans against the wooden horse presented to the city by the Greeks. In the Aeneid, Virgil gives Laocoön the famous line Equo ne credite, Teucri / Quidquid id est, timeo Danaos et dona ferentes, or "Do not trust the Horse, Trojans / Whatever it is, I fear the Greeks even bearing gifts." This line is the source of the saying: "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts."

The Trojans, according to Virgil, disregarded his advice, however, and were taken in by the deceitful testimony of Sinon; in his resulting anger Laocoön threw his spear at the Horse. Poseidon, who was supporting the Greeks, at this moment sent sea-serpents to strangle Laocoön and his two sons, Antiphantes and Thymbraeus
