Hellenistic period (ca. 323-30 BCE)
Nike of Samothrace (ca. 190 BCE)
In art, both architects and sculptors broke most of the rules of Classical design. Hellenistic sculptors explored new subjects… Artists delighted in depicting violent movement and unbridled emotion (Kleiner, 2009).
Girls aren’t beautiful, they’re pretty. Beautiful is too heavy a word to assign to a girl. Women are beautiful because their faces show that they know they have lost something and picked up something else.
— Henry Rollins
