Hi, need to submit a 2000 words paper on the topic Cycladic Sculpture of the Early Greece Culture. The piece is curved at the front and has angled lines at the back that merge with the spine and the broad shoulders are slightly arched. It has small pointed breasts, narrow arms that are folded right below the left. The figure has gently curved hands across the abdomen that is swollen. The piece has a deep cleft apex that is bisected and separates the long legs in front. It has a shallow cleft in the back that is raised up to the horizontal buttock ridge. The knees are intended and profiled. The ankles are also incised and the feet are angled down having concave soles with delineated toes. The piece is 11 and a half-inch high. (Symes)
The image has a feminine figure with broad shoulders and a curved waist. It is a small sculpture that is portable. The figure uses a curved triangular shape for the head, curved square shape for the breast oval curve for the waist and semi triangular shape for the legs. The texture type used in the image is not actual but visual. This is a texture typical for human skin. The texture type indicates that it is a light piece. It has a predominantly light with dark accents in the value scheme.
The sculpture has varied characteristic aspects that relate to the principles of design. It portrays a perfect balance in the way the weight of the piece can be distributed evenly through the shoulder down to the feet. The shoulders are wider but proportional to the waist and portable by the legs. The hands are evenly shaped, but little thinner compared to the body size. The breast size is broader and not uniform to the lower part after the arms which provides nonfeminine images and looks unrealistic. This is a clear contrast to the figurative image of the female body.
There is harmoniously curved shaping of the waist and legs. The forward bending of the knees depicts natural movement in the piece. The piece is composed of numerous regular shaping to form a smooth feminine image. The dominant points on the piece are in the breasts and waist. The waist has a curving line .similar to the inner pants while the breasts protrude in a distinct regular size in the right positions. The proportionality is clear from head to the toe with a little unevenness that is well protected by the folded arms. .
