According to http://www.yourdicionary.com the definition of humanism is a belief that human needs and values are more important than religious beliefs, or the need and desire of humans. After studying the pieces of art during the Archaic Period I noticed that their pieces weren’t more so about the religious side where as it was more so about the people. Say for instance in the Kore Figures you see more art sculptures that are of human beings. I think rather than the artist focusing on their religious beliefs they focused more so on the humans and admired and honored the human being for so then the religion. I noticed that even in the temples there where more sculptures of people than anything else such as the in the Temple of Aphaia at Aegina where they have sculptures of the warriors. Seeing this makes me think that people during the Ancient Greece area thought more of their people men, women, and warriors verse their religious beliefs.
