MetopesMetopes are the rectangular spaces below the the pediment of ancient buildings, such as the Parthenon in Athens. They fill the space between triglyphs, usually with some form of decoration. Below are twelve examples of Metopes, with all but one coming from the Parthenon. The illustrations are from the book Greece: Pictorial, Descriptive, and Historical by Christopher Wordsworth, which was published in 1839. There are several images that depict centaurs fighting with men. If you enjoy these drawings, you should drop by the galleries with illustrations of The Parthenon and the Erechtheion of Athens. Have fun perusing!
