Description

One of the latest kouroi in the collection, the Aristodikos kouros displays a high level of naturalism. Its musculature is much more softly rendered, leaving behind the straight, surface-level lines of early kouroi. Its arms bend at the elbows, breaking free from the traditional stance with the fists clenched at the thighs. It has not completely removed pattern, however. On its badly damaged head, patterned curls can still be seen in the hair. It stood above the grave of Aristodikos, whose name inscribes the base of the statue.
