The relatively rigid poses of figures relaxed, and asymmetrical turning positions and oblique views became common, and purposely sought. This was combined with a better understand of anatomy and the consonant organize of sculpted figures, and the pursuit of naturalistic representation as an aim, which had not been present before.

The High modular style continued to develop realism and sophistication in the human figure, and improved the depiction of drapery , using it to add to the impact of active poses. Facial expressions be usually dead restrained, flat in combat scenes. The composition of groups of figures in reliefs and on pediments combined complexity and harmony in a way that had a permanent manipulate on Western art. Relief could be dead high indeed, as in the Parthenon illustration below, where most of the leg of the warrior is completely detached from the background, as be the missing parts; relief this high made sculptures more subject to damage.
