The Parthenon and the Acropolis - Greek Architecture to perfection. A combination of harmony, proportion, elegance and grace.
The Parthenon, part 1. Construction began in 447 BC, and was completed in 15 years. Phidias directed the work. Ictinus and Callicrates, the architects, were required to design a temple with a sanctuary within that was large enough to house the statue of Athena sculpted by Phidias, a magnificent statue and work of art faced with ivory and gold.The funding for the construction that took place over many years came from the treasury of the Delian League, tribute reluctantly paid by Athenian allies.
