Will has been asked to respond to this excerpt from A
Short Walk around the Pyramids and through the World
of Art by Philip Isaacson.
The temple is called the Parthenon, and the horse was
part of a group of figures made especially for its east
pediment, a large stone triangle fitted just under the
roof. The Parthenon, high on a hill, catches the first
light of morning. The carvers wanted the sight of that
golden light washing across the horse and a line of
other gods to be unforgettable. And so they coaxed the
images of their gods out of the marble with such
tenderness that they gave the world an example of
ideal beauty. Each figure is as calm and as refined as
our minds can imagine. They are so noble and quiet
that they do seem godly and perfect companions for
the noble, quiet temple.
