How does the representation of the human figure in a work of art express a cultures values?

No votes yet
The representation of the human figure can reflect the central values of a culture. In this instance, two artworks particularly stick out in terms of cultural values. The first is a marble sculpture from the Greek Period, Kroisos, found in Anavyssos and made around 530BCE. And the other is a hand-painted ceramic Mochica Portrait vessel from around 400CE. Both of these artworks express an individual value system from each of their cultures.
