Question on Greek art

[ Thread ][ Subject ][ Author ][ Date ]

Question...The phrase, "Man is the measure of all things," refers to the Doric
column order. The base of the column is one sixth the height of the column
which directly corresponds to the human body.

Does this phrase also have deeper implications in reference to Greek art. Would
anyone like to elaborate on the phrase, its context and meaning?

Thanks, Ellen Woodoff, Columbia, SC
