In that representations of Greeks meet artistic and courtly ideals of invention, decorativeness and splendor in with political and humanist assumptions of continuity, translatio and claim to power. The exotic image figure is on the one Hand a placeholder for the mostly unknown antiquity, and on the other hand displayable representation of the borders of the own, which include the strangers sometimes.
