Athens !

Getting lost / finding ourselves in Greece


National Anthropological Museum of Athens

Cyladic Anthropomorphic Marble Figurines are the most important works of Cycladic art . They usually represent standing female naked figures whose ancient prototypes are the neolithic female figurines of the Greek mainland Aegean and Anatolia .They are made of marble in nearly every case and are of different size. (3200 to 2000 B.C.  By far one of the oldest pieces of human history I have seen).


 Bronze statue of Zeus or Poseidon. Found in the sea of Cape Artemision in northern Euboea. Classical period, ca 460 BC.

When we all introduced ourselves here. We were received warmly by all those who participated in the event. Events at Venues in NYC are a lot of fun, giving access to features that aren't always the easiest to get into and aren't always the most wallet friendly.
