Statue of Kore, dedicated to Hera by Cheramydes of Samos; front view
Statue of Kore, dedicated to Hera by Cheramydes of Samos; front view
-Ca. 560 BC-Example of the Ionic chiton- note the folds (also wears a himation as well as the epiblema, a one piece veil). -The dedication by Cheramyes is written along the front edge of the epiblema. Cheramyes dedicated another kore and koros at the same site- perhaps did they all belong together on a single plinth as a group? -Cylindrical body, splaying to a plinth, where the hem line of the dress is cut back to show the toes. The form was probably likely inspired by large wheel-made figures of clay. This form closely matches Mesopotamian sculptural types that persisted into the contemporary neo-Babylionian empire-Right hand clenched and to side while left hand is raised to the breast. Hand is now missing, so we do not know if she held something in it. It has been suggested that she perhaps held the key to the temple of Hera in her hand. -See beginnings of interest of how cloth hangs over the female anatomy (note how the folds change over the swelling of the breasts). Also, note how the chiton folds are now modeled, close set to each other, and are contrasted with the plain areas of mantle and epiblema to exploit contrasts of texture and weight of fabric. -Kore (plural: korai) are the female counterparts of the kouroi. Kore in ancient Greek means a young, unmarried woman, usually just on the cusp of womanhood. Unlike the kouroi, they korai are always clothed. They served the same purposes as kouroi, but fewer are demonstrably funerary (as the Berlin Goddess appears to have been). Most are dedications made in the sanctuaries of female deities. Their importance in the development of Archaic Greek sculpture really comes after 570 BC. The earliest examples (such as Nikandre) are wholly Daedalic in appearance. What is striking about the 6th c. BC korai in comparison to their earlier counterparts is the interest in pattern of drapery, which was first developed in east Greece. The korai produced after the mid 6th c. are often dressed in the chiton, the traditional dress of Ionian (East Greek) women. This parts the point in which dress patterning ceases to mainly surface decoration and is expressed in depth, making the dress as such a subject of independent interest to the artist and at the same time leaving him freer to consider more effective modeling of the body apart from the dress, or, eventually, as it is revealed and accentuated by the dress.
My finished piece!
My finished piece!
I actually kind of surprised myself with how straight I managed to make my free-hand pattern fit. It's almost like one solid piece of fabric...but it is not! =P The only thing I'm not so sure of is *because* it looks like one piece, it blends right in together (though, it does more so in the picture here than in our dining room, much more so in the picture). I'm thinking I might add some cordage to the valance and inside of the panels...but I'm not sure yet. I think the valance might look nice with small tassels on the other points coming down. Not near as cool as the Irish curtains I was inspired by (perhaps because I couldn't afford that much velvet, lol!), but the pattern I drew up from that inspiration is fun, and I think it came out OK!
