[SR: 3327857], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780520215566], University of California Press, University of California Press, Book, [PU: University of California Press], University of California Press, The meaning of architectural sculpture is essential to our understanding of ancient Greek culture. The embellishment of buildings was common for the ancient Greeks, and often provocative. Some ornamental sculpture was placed where, when the building was finished, no mortal eye could view it. And unlike much architectural ornamentation of other cultures, Greek sculpture was often integral to the building, not just as decoration, and could not be removed without affecting the integrity of the building structure. This book is the first comprehensive treatment of the significance of Greek architectural sculpture. Brunilde Sismondo Ridgway, a world-class authority on ancient Greek sculpture, provides a highly informative tour of many dimensions of Greek public buildings―especially temples, tombs, and treasuries―in a text that is at once lucid, accessible, and authoritative.Ridgway's pragmatism and common sense steer us tactfully and clearly through thickets of uncertainty and scholarly disagreement. She refers to a huge number of monuments, and documents her discussions with copious and up-to-date bibliographies. This book is sure to be acknowledged at once as the standard treatment of its important topi, 15762881, History, 173508, Architecture, 1, Arts & Photography, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4539344011, Decoration & Ornament, 173508, Architecture, 1, Arts & Photography, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 713036011, History, 1064, History & Criticism, 1, Arts & Photography, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5824920011, Appreciation, 2106, Sculpture, 1, Arts & Photography, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4880, Greece, 4873, Ancient Civilizations, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5399, Decoration & Ornament, 5396, Decorating & Design, 6158312011, Home Improvement & Design, 48, Crafts, Hobbies & Home, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 1061, Architecture, 7743007011, Annuals, 226516, Codes & Standards, 1058, Methods & Materials, 1063, Study & Teaching, 13803, Reference, 173515, Engineering, 173507, Engineering & Transportation, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11242, Archaeology, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 684268011, Ancient, 468230, History, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 468210, Architecture, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 684282011, Sculpture, 491374, Visual Arts, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 684260011, Art History, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 491450, Archaeology, 468214, Social Sciences, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
