Holy Place, Please Remain Silent.

paintings, sculptures, architecture, photography - I'm posting everything from the history of art that I find beautiful

Hellenistic period (ca. 323-30 BCE)
Nike of Samothrace (ca. 190 BCE) 
In art, both architects and sculptors broke most of the rules of Classical design. Hellenistic sculptors explored new subjects… Artists delighted in depicting violent movement and unbridled emotion (Kleiner, 2009).
