TWO KOUROI, 600BC, GREECE Early work in the Greek Archaic Period resembles the Egyptian style, simple designs with stiff poses, facing forward. An "archaic smile" is evident which typified many of these early statues. This early example is named Kouros or young man in Greek. Greeks began making stone statues around 650BC. If other materials were used for statues in these early periods, they have not survived. [NS] {SW}
