I am too busy to add captions, but I encourage you to enjoy some exhibits from the Cycladic Art Museum in Athens. There are 4 floors with different themes (Cyclades, ancient Greece, Cyprus, everyday life in ancient Athens). Currently, there is a special exhibition about Cyclades in the ground floor, which explains how and why the cycladic idols where made. The museum cafeteria is also a must!
More info @ cycladic.gr, ongoing competition with #mycyclades
Here are some pictures from my visit. We spent ~4 hours in the Museum and didn’t manage to see all of the permanent collection. I have to go back!
Romanov succession line (wow, they lasted almost 200 years!)
I adore Anastasia Romanov (probably because of the 1997 film)
Women’s boudoir items from India
Silver chest box made in China or by Chinese craftsmen in India
Yay! Vodka bottles and shot glasses!
A fan with traditional russian style, wedding gift for Maria Fedorovna
Eros & Psyche playing with a butterfly
Frank William Brangwyn (1890)
Village people in Napole, Italy. They look so similar to Greeks!
The winter palace of the Romanovs
The winter palace of the Romanovs (close-up)
The byzantine (permanent) collection
I would definitely where them!
Someone, please, steal this pair of earrings for me!
Well, it looks like marble decoration from a church, I wonder where they took it from.
The yard of the Museum. Perfect for a warm afternoon.
I don’t know what this building is , but it is gorgeous.
Some indian food afterwards, because we truly needed a power-up.
