Art that Blew Me Away, Part 3

Statue of a Kore. Extraordinary when seen in person. National Archaeological Museum, Athens.

 

Parian marble. Merenda (ancient Myrrhinous), Attica. From grave of Phrasikleia. Archaic style. By sculptor Aristion from Paros, 550-540 BCE.

 

I didn't realize I could take pictures in the museum, so I snapped a shot later of this photo in the guide map. Better photo of the colored marble detail: scherminator.com/greece/athens/museum/museum.html
