THE ACROPOLIS MUSEUM COLLECTION
A Caryatid is a sculpted female figure serving as an architectural support taking the place of a column supporting an entablature on her head.
The Korai of the Acropolis of Athens are a group of female statues discovered in the last quarter of the nineteenth century all of the same typology.
New design objects exclusively for the Acropolis museum. Each object has two sides picturing both sides of the original statue.
Greece has always been a generous place. Culture, nature, light, are some of the elements that Greece has gifted to humanity. Values like kindness, honor, charm, are established in all forms of its culture, from ancient years, till tradition and modern art. Inspired by our heritage and our everyday light, we designed 'Gracious Greece' series. Our initiative was to create high quality useful art objects, that at a first glance, they transmit simplicity and values, from this little place of earth.
