Papatsonis: Wisdom
spyro_prime wrote in psychologia
We arrived thus little by little to nakedness,
one by one we took off the famous problems,
the colorful, the cherry, the purple of the charms,
and only now, although some kind of fear even before,
some presage, told us what waits for us,
yet, only now, us, the unclothed,
saw, that we are dust. Awareness of a miserable
wisdom. Poverty of today. Inadvertence of yesterday.
Our work now is to elevate it into a triumph.

Translated by Elpenor

The Greeks were a very sexual society obsessed with human perfection.
They also had many scenes from glorious battles of men with spears,
swords and large metal shields, showing the sheer power of Grecian society.
As you can see, there are many different aspects of Greek art.
All of these different aspects make Greek art recognizable and very powerful.
