Notes

Summary:
KOUROS - Greek for youth. Kouros figures were grave monuments, replacing (or supplementing) the large vessels of the Geometric Period. The Anavyssos Kouros and others of the archaic period are typically very broad in the frontal view, but comparatively slim in the side view, with a distinct swaybacked curve at the waist. The chest is quite massive, but the neck is extremely slender.
