There is an extensive array of such features going from something as simple as a hanging wall fountain or as complex as a courtyard tiered fountain.

Garden wall fountains are worthwhile additions to your living areas such as yards, yoga studios, cozy patios, apartment verandas, or office complexes. The comforting sounds of flowing water from a fountain please the senses of sight and hearing of anyone nearby. The most important consideration is the aesthetically eye-catching form they have which complements the interior design of any room. The water’s soothing sounds contribute to a sense of tranquility, cover up unwanted noises, and provide a delightful water display.

Aspects of Outdoor Statuary in Archaic Greece

Aspects Outdoor Statuary Archaic Greece 521551949.jpg Aspects of Outdoor Statuary in Archaic Greece The first freestanding statuary was designed by the Archaic Greeks, a notable achievement since until then the only carvings in existence were reliefs cut into walls and pillars. For the most part the statues, or kouros figures, were of young and nice-looking male or female (kore) Greeks. Representing beauty to the Greeks, the kouroi were crafted to look stiff and commonly had foot in front; the males were healthy, robust, and naked. The kouroi became life-sized beginning in 650 BC. The Archaic period was an awesome point of transformation for the Greeks as they grew into new modes of government, formed unique expressions of art, and gained information of the people and cultures outside of Greece. The Arcadian wars, the Spartan penetration of Samos, and other wars between city-states are examples of the types of conflicts that occurred commonly, which is consistent with other times of historical transformation.
