To this day, this area is flooded with Roman locals and travelers alike who enjoy conversation and each other's company. Bernini would without a doubt have been happy to know that people still flock to what has become one the city's most fashionable areas, that around his amazing water fountain. The master's very first water fountain of his career was built at around 1630 at the request of Pope Urbano VIII. Illustrated in the fountain's design is a great vessel gradually sinking into the Mediterranean Sea. The great 16th century flooding of the Tevere, which left the entire region inundated with water, was memorialized by the water fountain according to documents from the period. In 1665 Bernini traveled to France, in what was to be his only extended absence from Italy.

The Major Characteristics of Classic Greek Sculpture

Major Characteristics Classic Greek Sculpture 36492042128.jpg The Major Characteristics of Classic Greek Sculpture Archaic Greeks were well known for providing the first freestanding statuary; up till then, most carvings were constructed out of walls and pillars as reliefs. For the most part the statues, or kouros figures, were of young and attractive male or female (kore) Greeks. Representing beauty to the Greeks, the kouroi were made to appear rigid and typically had foot in front; the males were healthy, sturdy, and naked. Around 650 BC, life-size variations of the kouroi began to be observed. The Archaic period was an amazing time of transformation for the Greeks as they grew into new forms of government, formed fresh expressions of art, and achieved knowledge of the people and cultures outside of Greece. Comparable to many other moments of historical unrest, disagreements were common, and there were struggles between city-states like The Arcadian wars, the Spartan invasion of Samos.
