It's essential to know the values which this art was born into and the circumstances which caused it's development to be able to understand and interprete it. These are the elements peculiar to Ancient Greek society; A suitable geographical location and the beauty thought which was born within this circumstance, humanism ideal along with the image of human shaped (anthropomorphic) gods, Homer and the heroism ideal that took shape in his legends and the identity comprehension. Throughout the ages, it has been thought that art was a matter of inspiration but certainly it has a intellectual dimension too and this is determined by the society that the art is born into. The explanations on Ancient Greek art will gain a more realistic characteristic if the values of the Greek society are known well.
