Her face became like that of a beautiful masterpiece of Phidias: pure, cold, and true.
Phidias the Moulder had, as has before been said, undertaken to make the statue of Athena.
He was also celebrated as the instructor of Myron, Phidias, and Polycletus.
Phidias himself would have preferred to have executed them in marble.
Now, it is not for the wax to discover for itself how much of it is required; that is the business of Phidias.
The frieze may be considered as the chief glory of the art of Phidias.
But it is scarcely proper to put the case of Phidias forward for comparative purposes.
At the entrance stood two small statues by Euphranor and Phidias.
Unfortunately, the Minerva image was the cause of the undoing of Phidias.
Eudora was a mere infant when Phidias bought her of a poor goatherd in Phelle.
