In this article, it is mention that in Ancient Greece, the Greek life was ruled by Religion. The temples were created big and beautiful places in Greece because of their strong religion. Architecture in Ancient Greece was magnificent. Greek had three types of architectural systems; Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian. They each required different structures and for different use. ("Acropolis." Ancient Greece. University Press Inc, n.d. 2013-2012)

Kristine Rapisura's curator insight, February 1, 2:35 AM

Karina Moreno's curator insight, April 11, 8:22 PM

Another reason, why I have always found ancient Greece history fascinating is because they were such well develops cities in their ancient times.  While other cities around them barely had a stable system to run their cities, most of Greece by then has a well establish economy, military, and government.  Investigating artifacts and scrolls has given a small glimpse of their everyday life.  In cities, such as Athens, men were the only citizens while women were not; women were to be at home and bear chidrens.  About a quarter of the population were slaves that were prisoners of war from the battles the city won, and these slaves were the ones that sustain the economy by doing the labor work.  Most of the Greek life were enjoyed by art, philosophy, food, and other entertainment.

Nancy Ross and her video touches a lot of ancient Greek and Roman art, as they were very similar and how Rome adopted many of Greece's traditions. Their art was very centralized around human figure, nude, perfect, and proportional.

claudia patino's curator insight, February 24, 7:45 PM

When I see a sculpture of a nude man I quickly think the Romans. Now I learned it was also a Greek form of art. I also learned both Romans and Greeks have there our gods for the same thing but different names.

Kelsey Cherise Quates's curator insight, April 17, 6:08 PM

This a very cool art style that is portrayed in the video also it gives brief history on the backgrounds of the Romans and the Greeks. The Romans took many of their inspiration from Greek art and architecture but made it their own.
