|Everything we do on this course can be illustrated by reference to a building, or a vase painting, or a sculpture. Mythology, theatre, the arts and crafts, sport, family life,daily life at work and in the home - all of these things were illustrated by artists in one way or another. The architects and builders raised public buildings like temples on which sculptors could leave their mark.|
