This advanced thinking was extended to the geometric period, which saw artists’ fascination with other patterns, such as zigzags, triangles and linear designs.
Eventually, they settled for idealized version of the perfect human body that would act as a representation of both man and gods, during the classical and Hellenistic periods.
The porch of the Pantheon used to face a temple courtyard.
The bronze doors are the entrance to the interior cylinder.
Therefore, classical art in Greece was the primary influence on the Roman art.
After the Greek empire fell to the romans in 146 B.The Greek were more philosophical and idealistic, while the Romans were more realistic and somehow extravagant in their approach to sculpture. Starting from the protogeometric period, it is evident that intellectual thought had taken root in Greece.Artists displayed their knowledge of mathematical principles during this period by decorating vases with geometric shapes and symmetrical patterns.C., they adopted all aspects of Greek art and architecture.However, they molded the borrowed techniques of the Greeks to create art that catered to their own distinctive values and ideals.Romans were fully influenced by Greeks and they copied every aspect of Greek art from sculpture to architecture.It is due to this reason that Roman art is not highly regarded as the Greek’s.The similarities and differences of Greek art and Roman art can be looked up in three major areas: sculpture, painting and architecture.Greek and Roman arts share a lot of similarities to the point that it is hard to separate the two forms of art.The top of the cylinder has a hole in the middle, called an oculus. In ancient times, the outside walls had colored marble on them. The only natural light that enters the Pantheon goes through the oculus from the top and through the bronze doors at the bottom.This results in patterns of light that change throughout the day because of the suns movements.
