Cycladic Man.....roughly 4500 years old!







I apologise for the hazy quality of the picture , but due to the age of the artifact, this particular section of the museum has very dim lights and using of the flash is not allowed .

Do enlarge for a better look .

Taken at:
National Museum Athens./ 13 June 2007.

The very thought that something that has existed for such an unimaginable length of time is mind boggling !!

All ancient cultures are replete with such amazing articles.

Blurry or not, I loved this. Such an interesting little statue. I'm always amazed that stone can take on such movement and life.

I don't mind the blurriness at all - it's a treasure.
