Portraits were used in ancient Greece and Rome to honor people. Sculptors captured a realistic likeness, and used clothing and gestures to convey status. Pigment added to wet plaster allowed ancient Romans and Greeks to capture monstrous figures and landscapes in wall frescos and grottoes. Statues of goddesses portrayed cultural ideals of feminine beauty. Engraved gemstones served as a personal signature for documents or were used for cameos.
