Abstract

KOUROS - Greek for youth. Kouros figures were grave monuments, The kouros, Kroisos, stands in a frontal posture, with his left foot slightly advanced. He holds his arms, which are separated from his body, at his sides, and clenches his fists. He is unusually fleshy, which suggests to East Greek influence. His hair is arranged in ringlets below a narrow taenia, but is summarily worked on the crown (as if he is wearing a skull cap). The locks of his hair, arranged strands of circular clumps, fall in a curve behind down his back, and are rounded on the sides.
