Parthenon Frieze

Parthenon Frieze

Below you will find twenty black and white illustrations that recreate the Parthenon Frieze, which once adorned the Parthenon on the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. The images are from the book Sculpture for Beginners and Students by Clara Erskine Clements. It was published in 1885. Clements describes the frieze as being “about thirty feet above the floor, three feet three inches broad, and about five hundred and twenty-two feet long. It represented a continuous procession, and the subject is called the great Panathenaic Procession.” The drawings depict sections of the frieze and show Greek gods and goddesses, musicians, cavalry, chariots, cows for sacrifice, and more. If you enjoy these images of the Parthenon Frieze, be sure to visit the galleries with more illustrations of the Acropolis Parthenon and the Acropolis in Athens. Enjoy!
