Dying Warrior from West Pediment, temple of Aphaia, 500 BC
would have been on the reconstructed pediment, trying to do natural but not really, smiling even though dying, utilizing pediment in more natural sense
this building represents a time capsule that holds the axis upon which the revolution turned. Can tell archaic because of smile, not because happy but how Greece show they are different, to show this is a mortal person, a living individual involved in human issues, they have emotional experiences, they are like us, but still stiff

Myron, Discobolus, 450 BC
the reason we know these names shows about the rise of humanism, because ancient works, the people making the art are never the focus, its the subject, the king, or the god. this art work though celebrate the human experience. he is part of an olympic game, athletes would perform in the nude.
More of a focus on anatomy but we are still very aware this is not an actual human figure. The discus thrower, at the perfect extension, the exact moment of rest before he launches the discus in the opposite direction. his arms are the bow, the body is the string, which is in a brief state of rest which is what will launch the discus. This sculpture is a copy, a Roman copy of a Greek original which was probably in Bronze which can better support its own weight an so wouldn't have needed the tree trunk
