CLASSICAL GREEK SCULPTURE

Preclassic Kouros

Myron's Discus Thrower exists only as a broken Roman copy of the Greek original. It has been reconstructed by a number of artists, who were fascinated by the harmony of movement and balance in the figure. Through the Great Books page of Malaspina Community College a sort of photo essay on Myron's sculpture can be accessed. Click here for some sample shots.
