Once the Classical Period start to approach it looks to believe that the artist started to become more realistic when it came to the human body form. For example, the Riace Warrior sculpture shows in detail how a male body figures are. It also shows how we as humans tend to put more body weight on one side of the body when we stand. It’s not that humans lack that perfect proportion, its that this is how humans have been standing for ages and not even realizing it. The classic period also reminds me of what they said all humans body it portions where one side of the body tends to be larger than the other side of the body. After looking over the art in this wing, I tend to ask the question as many probably ask as well and that is What is consider the perfect proportion when it comes to human body? Is it to be all the same for all humans or is it to be different?
