The Ancient Greek?

The ancient Greeks are known for celebrating the human body. Do you know of two examples of how this cultural value was expressed in the everyday art forms.

Before answering, be sure you know what “everyday” means, and it does NOT include friezes and statuary. In answering, actually explain the examples rather than just listing them
