The Olympic Games, an event connected to great tradition and monumental importance is a situation artists can capture in beautiful ways. The competition to capture the event in the most beautiful way was one which artists strived to win, as it was seen as a tremendous achievement, worthy of the best artist among different nations.
This sculpture, carved out of bronze during the Ancient Greek Olympic Era, is a very famous work. Archaeologists have hypothesized that this woman, known as the Bronze Running Woman, was a creation of a Spartan artist. It is believed to be so, because of the Spartans great belief in the advancement of women's rights and freedoms. Spartans believed that if a woman was fit, she would produce more fit children, who would then make better warriors. This piece of artwork is amazing in the sense that it captures an ancient society's view on a modern cause.
