    There is a tendency in modern scholarship to interpret naked men, especially when they are warriors, as heroes. In Greek art, these nude figures are assumed to be special in some way. This is because scholars assume that, throughout Greek history, nudity was regarded as something out of the ordinary: regular mortals did not normally appear naked in public aside from the gymnasia or baths , let alone that they would actually fight in the nude. While the foregoing is probably true for the Classical period i. In particular, I would suggest that there were important changes as regards the treatment of male nudity that culminated in the final decades of the sixth century BC. In Archaic art, it is often hard to distinguish between scenes that are perhaps drawn after real life and scenes that are supposed to be mythological.

    Naked ambition: when the Greeks first stripped off

    Heroic nudity or ideal nudity is a concept in classical scholarship to describe the un-realist use of nudity in classical sculpture to show figures who may be heros , deities, or semi-divine beings. This convention began in Archaic and Classical Greece and continued in Hellenistic and Roman sculpture. The existence or place of the convention is the subject of scholarly argument. In ancient Greek art warriors on reliefs and painted vases were often shown as nude in combat, which was not in fact the Greek custom, and in other contexts. Idealized young men but not women were carved in kouros figures, and cult images in the temples of some male deities were nude.

    For the Ancient Greeks, the human body was a sacred thing that was meant to be celebrated in both art and everyday life. Outside of the sporting arena, women still bared their chests alongside men in everyday life. Traditional Minoan dresses were cut down to the mid-waist leaving the breasts exposed; a stark contrast to today where in many parts of society women will be criticized just for breastfeeding a baby in public. In other parts of Greece, nudity played in an even larger role in life , especially in athletics. In the Greek mind, the purest form of athletics was practiced naked.
