Christian attitudes cast doubt on the value of the human body, and the Christian emphasis on chastity and celibacy further discouraged depictions of nakedness, even in the few surviving Early Medieval survivals of secular art.This is certainly the case for the kouros, a large standing figure of a male nude that was the mainstay of Archaic Greek sculpture.The first realistic sculptures of nude males, the kouroi depict nude youths who stand rigidly posed with one foot forward.Other significant non-Western traditions of depicting nudes come from India, and Japan, but the nude does not form an important aspect of Chinese art.Temple sculptures and cave paintings, some very explicit, are part of the Hindu tradition of the value of sexuality, and as in many warm climates partial or complete nudity was common in everyday life.
