Porch of the Maidens
Porch of Maidens attached to the Erechtheum.  This building, on the Acropolis was, next to the Parthenon, the most important building of the great age of Greek sculpture.  The Maidens stand four on the front and one on each end supporting with their heads the top of the portico.  This is the best example of using human forms in place of columns.
