Geometric Greek

Geometric Greek art was produced from ca. 900-700 B.C., which for the ancient Greeks was a time of an important transformation leading to the formation of the Greek city-state, the development of the Greek alphabet and writing, as well as the dramatic advancement of trade relations and colonization from southern Italy and Sicily to the coast of Asia Minor. The rise of a unified state religion led to the construction of large temples and sanctuaries dedicated to the Olympian gods. A revival in the visual arts led to the representation of Greek myth and scenes from epic poetry, such as Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey. The emerging aristocratic class distinguished itself with material wealth subsequently used to furnish their burials with metal objects, finely painted pottery, engraved gems and gold jewelry. During this time mages of the armed warrior, chariot, and horse are among the most familiar symbols. Most were depicted in the form of finely cast statuettes of bronze or on painted pottery in an angular geometric style, which gives the Geometric period its name.
