Ancient Greeks, classic ideas, the perfection, the single man and the polis.

A friend, who knows my interest in the classic culture, has sent me a photo of Lacoonte that he captured while was visiting Rome.

The history of this statue is the history of our occidental civilization. Made during the bronze age, it is the history of Lacoonte, from the Illiade or Troyan wars.
Later, during the dark time, the medieval age, it vanished off the face of the earth, and was found again during the Renaissance, really, was the modern lighthouse.

Well, you can read in the web about this History.

You can see the perfection
