Ancient Greek, Sculpture, Statue, Creature, Minotaur Theseus 2 Jpg, Greek Mythology
The Sphinx and the Minotaur, Centaurs and Gorgons, dragons and unicorns- ancient mythology and medieval fables are teeming with strange creatures.
The legend of Minotaur in the labyrinth is actually a very extensive one and closely tied to the legend of the island Crete. Not just the creature itself, mind you, but the labyrinth is the most important part of the story because after a hero finds the Minotaur, how will he survive if he doesn’t find a way to get out? (For more on the legends of the Minotaur, the labyrinth and Crete, visit this website.)
The Greeks, much like the Egyptians, also created sculptures of mythical creatures. This is a sculpture of the mythical creature Minotaur, half man and half bull. The Greeks had a fascination with bulls. It is believed that this fascination coupled with the king of the Minoan people, Minos, were the inspirational forces behind this creatures name, Minotaur. The tale of this creature sprang to life just after the dark ages. The Egyptians most famous mythical creature is the Sphinx.

Très tôt en Grèce, les Grecs ont sculpté une statue qui représente une déesse ailée pour faire preuve de la victoire de Samothrace. La déesse ailée vint sur terre pour faire honneur au vainqueur. Elle s'est fait arracher sa tête et ses bras. Département des antiquités grecques, Musée du Louvre, Paris Alycia&Jodie 6e1

studying for art history, just thought I'd share my favorite sculpture of all time. seriously though...what kind of person can create such a thing?? It's breathtaking, Laoccon and His Sons- Hellenistic Greek
Laocoon and His Sons First Century Artists: Rhodes Sculptors(Agesander, Athenodoros, Polydorus) Period: Hellenistic Greek Story from the Aeneid of the Trojan priest who tried to warn his people of the dangers lurking inside the Trojan horse. snakes were sent by the gods to prevent him. Heightened musculature accentuates pathos of the moment.
Athanadoros, Hagesandros, and Polydoros of Rhodes, Laocoon and his sons, from Rome, Italy. - so many of these now on my list of things to see! this is one.
Laocoön ~Athanadoros, Hagesandros, and Polydoros of Rhodes Marble circa 50 B.C.E. Vatican Museum, Vatican City, Rome, Italy
This is one of the most famous works of art from the Hellenistic period, and is what I personally think about when I hear about the Hellenistic period. This is a sculpture of Laocoön and His Sons and in this period of art sculptors started to give more facial expression and show more flaws compared to the art in the Classical period where almost every sculpture had a similar ideal face and similar expression.
The statue of Laocoön and His Sons, also called the Laocoön Group, is a monumental sculpture in marble now in the Vatican Museums, Rome. The statue is attributed by the Roman author Pliny the Elder to three sculptors from the island of Rhodes: Agesander, Athenodoros and Polydorus. A life size work (1.84 m in height), it shows the Trojan priest Laocoön and his sons Antiphantes and Thymbraeus being strangled by sea serpents.
