 Metope Group (Getty Museum)
As with most ancient artists, the true names of the painters in the Metope Group are unknown.
They are identified only by the stylistic traits of their work: a distinctive treatment of the heads on the shoulders of the vases, decorative pattern work, and use of added color.
Scholars named the Group for the architectural friezes of metopes and triglyphs on the bases of naiskoi on several of their vases.

North Metope of the Parthenon with Athena and Hera or Themis
The chiton-clad Goddess seated on a rock presents an extraordinary pattern of wavy folds across the center of her body and her left side, not matched on the pediment or the frieze, and contrasting with the comparative severity of the peplophoros before her.
Since she is Athena we may assume that this eye-catching style and pose (and the fact that this is the first metope figure faced by anyone approaching the Parthenon) is deliberate.

On the north side of the Parthenon the metopes are poorly preserved, but the subject seems to be the sack of Troy.

A veritable model of techno construction, the hypnotic “33” merges acidy synths, percussive slams, loud synth strafings, and ringing bells into a pumping mix.
With 'Metope' a Greek word meaning 'between the openings,' Schwanen's moniker aptly suggests the slippery way his material references styles beyond techno.
A mellow vibe colours the funky electro-shimmy of “M1D1” to lovely effect while the nominal techno of “CPU-Circus” skips brightly, all the while peppered by synth glistens and arcade ammo.
