   schema:description "Bringing together new essays on various aspects of this world-renowned temple, this book offers: the dramatic setting of the Parthenon, and its impact on modern architects such as Le Corbusier; new reconstructions and interpretations of Pheidias' vast sculptural program; in-depth analysis of architectural refinements, and the techniques employed in making the colossal gold-and-ivory cult statute; and a consideration of the Christian and Muslim phases of the Parthenon's history. Collectively, they enhance our understanding of one of the icons of Western art."--Jacket."@en ;
