During this period, we saw a more diverse range of art produced, in terms of moving away from the earlier ideals of the Greeks to a broader representation of both humans and gods. Art of older people, younger people, and babies was produced. Art produced of gods varied greatly, in terms of poses depicted and figures displayed. The subject matter of the art varied wildly, producing a rich and nuanced collection of pieces. Hellenistic Art is indeed more diverse than that of the Greeks, which depicted a consistent ideal often in similar poses.
