"经典" (jīngdiǎn) versus "古典" (gǔdiǎn):

"经典" (jīngdiǎn) generally is used to describe something classical that is renowned, recognized, or widely accepted as an exemplary model or work within a field, whether it's literature, art, philosophy, or any other domain.

"古典" (gǔdiǎn), on the other hand, pertains to the styles, principles, or works originating from an earlier historical period that is considered ancient.
