Archaic Greek Art: Outdoor Statuary

The primitive Greeks built the 1st freestanding statuary, an impressive achievement as most sculptures up until then had been reliefs cut into walls and pillars. Most of the freestanding statues were of youthful, winsome male or female (kore) Greeks and are termed kouros figures. Considered by Greeks to represent splendour, the kouroi were formed into inflexible, forward facing poses with one foot outstretched, and the male statues were always nude, well-built, and fit. The kouroi grew to be life-sized commencing in 650 BC. A significant era of transformation for the Greeks, the Archaic period introduced about new forms of state, expressions of artwork, and a greater comprehension of people and customs outside of Greece.

Acqua Vergine: The Remedy to Rome's Water Challenges

Rome’s first raised aqueduct, Aqua Anio Vetus, was built in 273 BC; before that, inhabitants residing at higher elevations had to rely on natural creeks for their water. Outside of these aqueducts and springs, wells and rainwater-collecting cisterns were the lone technological innovations around at the time to supply water to segments of higher elevation.Acqua Vergine: Remedy Rome's Water Challenges 887646152489655.jpg From the early sixteenth century, water was routed to Pincian Hill via the underground channel of Acqua Vergine. Pozzi, or manholes, were constructed at regular stretches along the aqueduct’s channel. Though they were originally manufactured to make it possible to support the aqueduct, Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi began using the manholes to collect water from the channel, commencing when he obtained the property in 1543. Apparently, the rainwater cistern on his property wasn’t good enough to meet his needs. Thankfully, the aqueduct sat under his property, and he had a shaft established to give him accessibility.
