WHAT DOES DAEDALIC MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Daedalic

Orientalizing period

In the Archaic phase of ancient Greece, the Orientalizing period is the cultural and art historical period informed by the art of Syria and Assyria, to a lesser extent also Phoenicia and Egypt, which started during the later part of the 8th century BCE. It encompasses a new, Orientalizing style, spurred by a period of increased cultural interchange in the Aegean world. The period is characterized by a shift from the prevailing Geometric style to a style with different sensibilities, which were inspired by the East. The intensity of the cultural interchange during this period is sometimes compared to that of the Late Bronze Age. The seventh century BCE also saw a comparable Orientalizing phase of Etruscan art, as a rising economy encouraged Etruscan families to acquire foreign luxury products incorporating Eastern-derived motifs.
