The Source of Today's Garden Water Fountains

The Source of Today's Garden Water Fountains Himself a highly educated man, Pope Nicholas V headed the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 till 1455 and was responsible for the translation of scores of age-old texts from their original Greek into Latin. He undertook the beautification of Rome to turn it into the worthy seat of the Christian world. Starting in 1453, the ruined ancient Roman aqueduct known as the Aqua Vergine which had brought clean drinking water into the city from eight miles away, underwent restoration at the behest of the Pope.

The Major Characteristics of Ancient Greek Sculpture Archaic Greeks were known for providing the first freestanding statuary; up until then, most carvings were constructed out of walls and pillars as reliefs. Younger, attractive male or female (kore) Greeks were the subject matter of most of the sculptures, or kouros figures. The kouroi, considered by the Greeks to represent beauty, had one foot stretched out of a rigid forward-facing posture and the male statues were regularly unclothed, with a compelling, sturdy build. In 650 BC, life-size forms of the kouroi began to be seen. During the Archaic time, a great time of changes, the Greeks were evolving new forms of government, expressions of art, and a deeper comprehension of people and cultures outside Greece.
