Assembled art

Saturday, 1 November, 2014

The three-dimensional art of Athens was not made exclusively from a single piece of material, nor from only one type of material, e.g. stone, terracotta or metal. A variety of members from the same or different materials bound together in a harmonious ensemble, were used for its production in different sizes and for various purposes. Visitors will be able to talk with the Archaeologist-Hosts about the ancient representatives of this art to be found at the Museum in a range of sizes, such as puppet dolls, idols, acroliths and chryselephantine statues, as well as their various functions in an ancient sanctuary.

The gallery talk 'Assembled art' is part of the program Alternating Gallery Talks of the Acropolis Museum.
