How Technical Concepts of Fountains Spread

How Technical Concepts of Fountains Spread Dissiminating useful hydraulic knowledge and fountain design ideas throughout Europe was accomplished with the published documents and illustrated publications of the time.

In France, near the end of his lifetime, he penned “The Principle of Moving Forces”, a publication that became the primary text on hydraulic mechanics and engineering. Explaining the latest hydraulic technologies, the book also modified critical hydraulic breakthroughs of classical antiquity. Archimedes, the developer of the water screw, had his work showcased and these integrated a mechanized way to move water.

Sculpture As a Staple of Vintage Art in Historic Greece

Sculpture Staple Vintage Art Historic Greece 060538065562.jpg Sculpture As a Staple of Vintage Art in Historic Greece Archaic Greeks were well known for providing the first freestanding statuary; up until then, most carvings were made out of walls and pillars as reliefs. Younger, ideal male or female (kore) Greeks were the subject matter of most of the statues, or kouros figures. Regarded as by Greeks to represent skin care, the kouroi were formed into firm, forward facing positions with one foot outstretched, and the male statues were usually nude, well-developed, and fit. In about 650 BC, the varieties of the kouroi became life-sized. During the Archaic time, a great time of changes, the Greeks were evolving new types of government, expressions of art, and a deeper comprehension of people and cultures outside Greece. Still, these clashes did little to impede the advancement of the Greek civilization.
