Probably the most known and notable example is Ancient Greece, where the human body epitomized divine and human excellence. For whatever reason, the Greek goddesses were relatively rarely depicted completely unclad, but many of the male divinities were on contrary almost always nude, and their athletic features embodied their manly virtues such as power, craft and bravery. So strong was the association between these moral and physical ideals, that often historically important figures were depicted naked too. For example, Harmodius and Aristogeiton, who assassinated an Athenian tyrant in 6th century BC and thus helped establishing the democratic ruling in the city, were the preeminent symbol of democracy to ancient Athenians, and of course this symbol had to be visualized and preserved for the following generations in a form of the statues. Many Roman emperors also ordered nude statues of themselves, often emphasizing their nudity by hanging their robes on a shoulder.
