Sculpture from Epidaurus

From the National Archaeological Museum of Athens

Winged Nike
From the Temple of Asclepios
From the Temple of Artemis

The sculptures at the National Museum of Athens pose in an exhibit both testiment to a great civilization and to a violent history of a country that spanned enough centuries to forget its own dark moments.

The fragments of Epidaurus in room appear in splendor even in their extreme ruinous state that betrays a history of a very popular cult revolving around the basic human preocuppation of health, and a religion that touched many lives in ancient antiquity.

Circa 370 B.C.
