The Arts

The Parthenon was important to the Greeks. The Parthenon was used to honor the Greek god Athena. The Parthenon had a huge statue of the god Athena. The statues inside the Parthenon still exist today.


The Greeks used the Arts in daily life. They used it to express there love for the gods. They used it for entertainment and explaining real life problems. The Greeks also used it for decoration.

What I enjoyed
