This paper discusses the sculpted art form from the Archaic Greek period known as Kouroi. The discussion addresses the characteristic features of Archaic Greek Kouroi, the influence of Egyptian culture on Archaic Greek Kouroi, and the eventual evolution of Archaic Greek Kouroi to appear more realistic. This occurred toward the late Archaic and Early Classical periods in Greek civilization.

From the Paper:

"The Greek statues known as Kouros sculpted in the Archaic tradition feature a number of characteristics that makes them representative of this era's artistic form and expression. According to Donna A. Wilson common characteristics of Archaic Kouros include a reliance on schemata impulse for pattern domination of surface and plane linearity, ornamentality and explicitness and passivity. One of the most famous Kouros statues is actually a pair of statues of the Greek twins Kleobis and Biton."
