HELLENISTIC SCULPTURE

LAOKOON, 1ST CENTURY BC. depicts climax. almost suspended it mid-air - seem weightless. exaggerated antomony e.g. swollen over the top muscles. many twists and open mouth in agony, "baroque." 3D hair flying in different directions = Hellenistic features. Purpose? Power of gods? Divine punishment? Divine justice? Virtue? Bravery? PERGAMON ALTAR early 2nd century BC. EAST FRIEZE = gigantomachy. main crux of battle. Function? Altar should be place for sacrifices to take place but no evidence of any burning/sacrifices. Not principally religious function - political? pergamese power - they defeated Gaul's and depicted themselves as saving Greeks from barbarians.
