Another element of Ancient Greek art was the frieze, which was a decorative band running across the upper part of a wall. The most famous Greek frieze is probably that of the Parthenon. This brilliant frieze shows 350 people and 125 horses in a religious parade that was for a celebration held in Athens every four years. In the frieze, horsemen are bunched up in some places, and strong light and shadow patterns weave themselves throughout the long line of figures. It is an extremely lively work of art, showing incredible amounts of motion among all its figures.
