Museum of Cycladic art guided tour

Description

The Nicholas P. Goulandris Foundation - Museum of Cycladic Art is one of the great museums of Athens. It houses a notable collection of artifacts of Cycladic art. Cycladic art encompasses the visual art of the ancient Cycladic civilization, which flourished in the islands of the Aegean Sea from 3300 - 2000 BCE. Along with the Minoans and Mycenaeans, the Cycladic people are counted among the three major Aegean cultures. Cycladic art therefore comprises one of the three main branches of Aegean art.

Itinerary

The museum  of cycladic art is dedicated to study and promote the ancient cultures of the  Aegean and Cyprus with special emphasis on Cycladic art. The museum covering enrichment collections from Cycladic art  3200-2000 BC, Ancient Greek art 2000 BC to AD 395 and Ancient Cypriot art 3900 BC-6th century AD, hosting also various exhibitions by the Goulandris foundation. The best-known art of this period are the marble figures usually called "idols" or "figurines", though neither name is exactly accurate: the former term suggests a religious function which is by no means agreed on by experts, and the latter doesn't properly apply to the largest figures, which are nearly life size. These marble figures are seen scattered around the Aegean, suggesting that these figures were popular amongst the people of Crete and mainland Greece.Perhaps the most famous of these figures are musicians: one a harp-player the other a pipe-player.Dating to approximately 2500 BCE, these musicians are sometimes considered “the earliest extant musicians from the Aegean.” The majority of these figures, however, are highly stylized representations of the female human form, typically having a flat, geometric quality which gives them a striking resemblance to today's modern art.

Museum of Cycladic art is one of the top museums in Athens!
