The garment and the way it shapes the body through the centuries, is the special element that characterizes the depiction of the female figure in the ancient greek sculpture. From the dressed Kores of the Archaic period, to the half-naked Aphrodites of the Classical period and the realism of the Hellenistic period, the female figure is evolving, either it represents goddesses or ordinary mortals.
Nevertheless, in ancient Greek sculpture, the depiction of gods does not differ from that of ordinary people, in size, beauty or spirituality.
The viewer follows a team of students, who reflect, with their paintings, the details and secrets of a great artistic expression, that played an important role to the development of art in the following years.
