A Kouros

This is the first real statue that I post from Greece under this theme but it'll surely be a common sight soon enough. The type posted here is called a Kouros and notice the style, this is what all Greek male statues once came from. It is also a very characteristic type from the period. Some easily recognizable traits can be listed; they are nude nude, frontal, with big eyes and one foot in front of the other. The hairstyle is also normally the same as here.

This piece should be from ca 600 BC.
