Mythological images and body forms of Greek gods.
Morphological modifications and somatic versions of human bodies can be
compared to images of mythological gods of Ancient Greece. And in essence it is
possible to correlate body forms of mythological gods of Ancient Greece with
vital principles and properties of consciousness in the context of Indian Ayurveda.
But it is necessary to consider that original Greek and Roman sculptures, also diverse art works of modern epoch not always correspond with valid divine images. Because original ancient sculptures or modern art works are caused by creative aspirations and imaginative notions of artists who frequently represented ideal forms of bodies according to uniform classical proportional canon without consideration of distinction which are caused by individual characteristics of gods.
Namely it is necessary critically to perceive original Greek and Roman sculptures, also modern art works in the event that sculptural forms of bodies have uniform proportions. But it is possible to consider artistic images of mythological gods if sculptural forms and proportions of bodies correspond to characteristics and psychological features which are described in myths of Ancient Greece.
