Parthenon Sculptures Hardback
by Ian Jenkins
The Parthenon sculptures in the British Museum are unrivaled examples of classical Greek art that have inspired sculptors, artists, poets and writers since their creation in the fifth century BC.
This book serves as a superb visual introduction to these magnificent sculptures.
The book showcases a series of specially taken photographs of the different sculptural elements: the pediments, metopes and Ionic frieze.
It captures the vitality of the sculptures in a group, an individual sculpture or an exquisite eye-catching detail, such as the mane of a horse, a human foot, the swish of drapery or a youthful head bowed in thought.
