In the Classical Greek and Rome art statues were the most common form of art, and there were three parts/steps of statues: archaic, classic, and hellenistic. In the first and ARCHAIC step in art, the main subjects were men. Balance and symmetry were key and the statues of the men looked very stiff. In the second and CLASSIC step in art, the statues remained men but they seemed to have more movement--they were no longer standing straight and stiff. Balance was still key, but symmetry not so much. The statues now had more details and represented the ideal body. In the third and HELLENISTIC step in art, the statues now ventured into sculpting women too along with men. It also included even more movement, texture, and details in the sculptures. The statues were not only idealism, but now realism. Source: Spanish Humanities Class
