Very stylized, does not represent actual human form. The figure is in a pose that represents fertility in Cycladic cultures, based on the arm crossed over the stomach.
Functional, yet art is applied. Shows that they value sea life in the Minoan Culture.
Sensitive to fertility based on the recognizable lady parts. Very symbolic, about as far from anotomically correctness you could be.
One of the early archaic statues. Classified by rigid body movement and stylized ideals.
Great example of classical Greek sculpture. Ideal proportions, more life like than archaic. Showcases the Ideal athletic Greek man.
Good example of Hellenistic Greek sculpture. It emphasizes realistic emotion, and depicts some sort of story. Not as ideal.
