Description
More than 100 statues, reliefs, vases, bronzes, coins, and gems illustrate this handsome volume exploring the integral role of heroes in ancient Greek art. With essays by leading authorities in the field, this book highlights the powerful yet flawed heroes of ancient Greece as they are reflected in the art of the era. Here the art highlights their contradiction—their superhuman powers masking the very mortality that made them heroic. This fascinating book brings to the forefront the mortal heroes who names have been lost in history, but whose stories are captured in the beautiful art of the age.
