The Sculptures of the Parthenon: Aesthetics and Interpretation
2000 (English)Book (Refereed)
The book compares the sculptures of the pediments to those of the metopes and the frieze, uncovering subtle differences in both the nature and the content of their images. As opposed to the divine elements represented in the pediments, the frieze is seen as the domain of human beings, representing events and also the stage of "history" when humans no longer have direct access to the presence of the gods. The frieze can be interpreted as an invocation of this presence.
