A leitmotif of early Greek art from 700 to about 550 BC is the portrayal of monsters and beasts set in long alternate rows. Both creatures personify the wilderness beyond the Greek city. For the first time in Greek art the pot painters of Corinth introduced a coherent system of arranging monsters and beasts. Lorenz Winkler-Hora?ek shows in detail how the painters transformed the unreal monsters into rationalised figures of the wilderness.
