Mounted and stand-alone water features are available on the market. Mounted wall fountains are small and self-contained versions which can be placed on a wall. Ordinarily made of resin (to look like stone) or fiber glass, these sorts of fountains are lightweight and easy to hang.

The Main Characteristics of Ancient Greek Sculpture

The Main Characteristics of Ancient Greek Sculpture Archaic Greeks were known for developing the first freestanding statuary; up until then, most carvings were constructed out of walls and pillars as reliefs. For the most part the statues, or kouros figures, were of young and desirable male or female (kore) Greeks. The kouroi, viewed by the Greeks to exemplify beauty, had one foot stretched out of a strict forward-facing pose and the male figurines were always nude, with a strong, sturdy physique. Life-sized versions of the kouroi appeared beginning in 650 BC. A substantial time of improvement for the Greeks, the Archaic period brought about new forms of government, expressions of art, and a higher appreciation of people and cultures outside of Greece. The Arcadian battles, the Spartan penetration of Samos, and other wars between city-states are instances of the types of conflicts that arose commonly, which is consistent with other times of historical change.
