The enormous number of the figures in the Parthenon, probably exceeding 500, of which 50 were colossal, and the size and complexity of the Athene, which was of gold, ivory, wood, and precious stones, standing 40 feet in height, make it impossible that these vast works could have been executed by the hand of a single artist. But Phidias is universally spoken of as the designer and presiding genius of the entire decoration; and, although some of the metopes are probably of an earlier school, the colossal groups of the pediments and the whole of the frieze have the stamp of one master mind.
Parthenon is located in the center of the ancient castle in the Acropolis of the Greek capital, on the hills of limestone, with a winding rectangular building. The temple stands at the highest point of the Acropolis. This is the world art treasure house. The famous Parthenon, also known as the Parthenon.
After more than two thousand years of vicissitudes, the temple has collapsed, the statue has disappeared, and the relief has been severely eroded. However, from the colonnade standing still, the temple’s richness can be seen.
The Parthenon is also translated as “Batnong Temple” and is the most important main building of the Acropolis. The name of the Parthenon is named after Athena. The translation of the Parthenon in the Latin alphabet, the Greek ∏αρθενωνας, means “virgin” (the root παρθενος, “virgin”). On the column, the Parthenon is adopted by the Parthenon.
