People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.” ― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast *Video Photos : Yannis Triantafillos *Post Cover Photo : Yannis Makrogiannelis *Video Edit : Socrates Rivers Here’s the video below:

Cycladic head sculpture at Antiparos port
11 August 2017
A new Cycladic head sculpture was put today by the Municipality of Antiparos at Antiparos port. The statue is made of marble and is a copy of similar types of art that have been created when the Cycladic civilization was flourished around 4500 – 5000 years ago. The sculpture, which is around 2.50 meters high, depicts the form of art that was developed widely in the Early Bronze Age. Photo Gallery General information about the ancient Cycladic art The Cycladic islands of the Aegean were first inhabited by voyagers from Asia Minor around 3000 BCE and a certain prosperity was achieved thanks to the wealth of natural resources on the islands such as gold, silver, copper, obsidian and marble. This prosperity allowed for a flourishing of the arts and the uniqueness of Cycladic art is perhaps best illustrated by their clean-lined and minimalistic sculpture which is amongst the most distinctive art produced throughout the Bronze Age Aegean. These figurines were produced from 3000 BCE until around 2000 BCE when the islands became increasingly influenced by the Minoan civilization based on Crete. Small statuettes were sculpted from local coarse-grained marble and although different forms were produced, all share the same characteristics of being highly stylized with only […]
