Option A.
This option does not follow parallelism and it is grammatically wrong to state the statement in that manner.
'liken to putting'? very wrong
Option B.
'which they likened to' this makes the option incorrect and does not follow a regular pattern of parallelism.

Option C.
likened it to.... the action should come after what it was likened to. So, this option is incorrect

Option D.
This option looks so correct but the other way of rephrasing it in option E makes it invalid.

Option E.THIS IS THE CORRECT ANSWER.
This option clearly satisfy the grammatical error, usage and fully birthed the mind of the speak

'which' is a modifier that seems to be modifying 'art'. A, B and C are out. Also, 'they is ambiguous in that it doesn't have a clear referrent.

D implies that technique is like a greek statue.

Only E has the right meaning.
