Description

The Tenea kouros was discovered near the modern city of Corinth at the ancient site of Tenea. Another grave marker, the statue has very similar proportions to the Getty kouros. It has a lithe, thin frame and smoother features. Its large, wide eyes stare out at the viewer, and its mouth is curved into a distinct archaic smile. This statue would have carried the identity of the deceased man whose grave it stood atop.
