Both Hellenistic and Classical arts are artworks showing different parts of any organized body. This means they are artworks based on the anatomy of a human being. Although both are committed to the same purpose, there are differences between them. The first notable difference between Hellenistic and classical arts is on how the two go about the displaying of their art collections.

Both Hellenistic and Classical arts are artworks showing different parts of any organized body.
Hellenistic arts about human anatomy are more real, in that, it shows the activities of the body and how it moved. The artworks are created emotionally. Classical arts, although, they show the human anatomy, they are not created to give more understanding of the activities of the body. Hellenistic arts operate with freedom, as they can make artworks on anything, but classical arts are more restricted to spiritual or natural things. Another thing is, Hellenistic arts have more concepts than classical arts.
