RE: Gabe
I agree– the emotions are so much more vivid in the Hellenistic art. The Laocoon with it’s snake is in of itself unique, we don’t see many creatures in the periods before it! I love that piece as well. I think about the Dying Gaul a lot, how his anguish is so immense yet he is idealized by his enemy in the sculpture. It goes to show how much respect they had.
