Social and economic difference of the Greek enabled them to turn into multi national structure from a perspective of a political site state run and to unite different nations in the same place. Alexander’s Eastern expedition (battle/fight) made also a cultural movement, This structural change was followed by forming stat-run instutions and wealth in religions, ideal forms in Helenistic sculpture arts made ideals get materialized by leaving its place to a naturalistic perspective. Helenstic artist, by this way, was able to open the doors of unlimited World that he formed in his own mind. The subjects in the sculptures were those from social life. By this way, we enabled us to be able to see the effect of epicurism and stocism which were the philasophical ideas of Helenistic period Therefore, lt can be said that there is a human image in Helenistic art. Helenistic understanding which was based on individual showed its effect also on sculptures. Human characters are reflected in a realistic way.
