Museum of Cycladic Art, {CATEGORY}

Among the most unusual forms of art around are the prehistoric idols found on the Cycladic Islands. These strange-looking statues dating back to the 4th and 3rd millennium BC are of an almost extra-terrestrial beauty. Splendid samples of this art form can be found at the Museum of Cycladic Art. The museum also includes a collection of ancient art dating from the 2nd millennium BC to the 4th century AD with sculptures, pottery, jewelery, coins and other items. Reproductions of Cycladic idols can be bought at the museum shop.

Museum of Cycladic Art, {CATEGORY}

Come here to see the largest collection of Modigliani-like Cycladic art outside the National Archaeological Museum. This handsome museum - the astonishing collection of Nicolas and Aikaterini Goulandris - opened its doors in 1986 and displays more than 200 stone and pottery vessels and figurines from the 3rd millennium B.C. This museum is as satisfying as the National Museum is overwhelming. It helps that the Goulandris does not get the same huge crowds, and it also helps that the galleries here are small and well lit, with labels throughout in Greek and English. The collection of Greek vases is small and exquisite - the ideal place to find out if you prefer black or red figure vases. The museum's elegant little shop has a wide selection of books on ancient art, as well as reproductions of items from the collection, including a pert Cycladic pig. When you've seen all you want to (and have perhaps refreshed yourself at the basement snack bar), walk through the courtyard into the museum's newest acquisition, the elegant 19th-century Stathatos Mansion. The mansion, with some of its original furnishings, provides a glimpse of how wealthy Athenians lived a hundred years ago.
