Timeline 1 Art Timeline: Final Project Greek Sculptures Derek J. Belton Art/101 University of Phoenix Online Rory Tubbs June 13, 2010 One theme that would improve the content of our museums website would be to feature various Greek sculptures throughout time and their different meanings. This timeline will have Greek sculptures from its existence many years before Christ up until today. The Greek sculptures have had an enormous impact on art and will continue to do so. The different types of sculptures are head statues, full body statues, multiple figure statues, etc.

Timeline 2 Figure 1 580 BC Kleobis and Biton Polymides of Argos Marble Delphi Archaeological Museum in Delphi Greece These two sculptures seem to be designed in the form of guards. It looks as if they are standing at attention trying to protect something, someone or a certain area. There are several different stories about the statues and how they came about. It is said that their mother and her priestess was very impressed with their work habits and loyalty, that the priestess gave them the best gift that could be given to a mortal, which was statues in their honor. The statues are life- size are on display at the Archaeological museum in Greece.

Timeline 3 Figure 2 438 BC Elgin Marbles: Metope Unknown Marble British Museum, London This is a very unique sculpture by the Greek unknown artist. It’s a sculpture that is carved out of a marble wall. It still has the fine detail just as the other Greek sculptures do and there is still nudity involved. The other interesting fact is that there is a human head and torso on what appears to be a horse’s back half. The half human half animal is in a fight with a human, which is an unfair advantage. Comparing this to other sculptures, this piece of art is not very realistic where the others are very real.
