English summary: Catamites, satyrs, winged phalluses, or couples engaging in sexual acts: Eroticism claims a prominent place in Ancient Greek art both in painting as well as in sculptureErotic and sexual goings-on have been tempting throughout the ages. If put into suggestive images and described with words arousing your imagination, they might even prove stimulating for the libido.. Excellent illustrations and concise texts present consenting or bought love between the exchange of caresses and the act of copulation - all placed in the competing fields of society, religion, everyday life, and festivals. Divine and human love is depicted vividly on works of art and for everyday use. And these show sometimes subtly, but sometimes also very graphically: In Ancient Greece, people enjoyed graceful physicality, soft caresses, hetero- as well as homosexual relationships, and numerous other facets of erotic activity. German description: Lustknaben, Satyrn, gefluegelte Phalli oder Paare beim Geschlechtsakt. Die Erotik nimmt in der bildlichen und plastischen Kunst des alten Griechenlands einen prominenten Platz einErotisch-sexuelles Tun verlockt zu allen Zeiten. Bildlich deutlich dargestellt und wortlich phantasieanregend beschrieben, mag es sogar Stimulans fuer die Libido sein. Exzellente Abbildungen und pragnante Texte zeigen freiwillig gewahrte oder berechnend erkaufte Liebe zwischen Zartlichkeitstausch und Geschlechtsakt - im Spannungsfeld von Gesellschaft, Religion, Alltag und Fest. Gottliches und menschliches Lieben wird lebendig wiedergegeben an Kunst- und Gebrauchsgegenstanden, die mitunter dezent, mitunter aber auch drastisch belegen: Im Alten Griechenland genoss man anmutige Korperlichkeit, zartliches Miteinander, hetero- und homosexuelle Beziehungen und zahlreiche andere Facetten erotischer Aktivitat.
