This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
After visiting the temple of Zeus, I wandered over to the Acropolis Museum. After such a hot day it was still a balmy night. It was also free entry to the museum so it was pretty crowded. The museum was full of artifacts from the Acropolis area. It also contained plaster casts of the Parthenon sculptures which were controversially taken to England in the early 19th Century. There was also a model of how the Acropolis would have looked 2,400 years ago. The sculptures are so beautiful, clearly based on detailed studies of the human form and the forms of animals. Ancient Greece was certainly a culture that took art seriously!
