Caryatid Statues, Restored, Are Stars at Athens Museum

When one of them was kidnapped in the 19th century, legend had it that the other five could be heard weeping in the night. But only recently have the famed Caryatid statues, among the great divas of ancient Greece, had a chance to reveal their full glory. For three and a half years, conservators at the Acropolis Museum have been cleaning the maidens, Ionic columns in female form believed to have been sculpted by Alkamenes, a student of ancient Greece’s greatest artist, Phidias. Their initial function was to prop up a part of the Erechtheion, the sacred temple near the Parthenon that paid homage to the first kings of Athens and the Greek gods Athena and Poseidon. Today they are star attractions in the museum; the originals outside were replaced with reproductions in 1979 to keep the real maidens safe. Parthenon by Costa-Gavras.

Les anciens Grecs ne jetaient pas leurs poubelles dans leurs champs

J. -C. de Tarente en Italie, ancienne colonie grecque. − Image originale : C'est un débat assez surprenant de prime abord. Mais il agite les spécialistes de la Grèce antique depuis plus de soixante ans. Ils se demandent en effet pourquoi leurs sites archéologiques sont fréquemment entourés d'une sorte de halo de tessons de poteries, se prolongeant parfois sur plusieurs kilomètres. Car pour beaucoup, l'affaire est entendue : tout cela vient d'une bonne vieille pratique millénaire, commune à une grande partie de l'Europe tempérée. Ce serait donc des siècles d'ordures ménagères que retrouveraient les archéologues en arpentant la campagne hellène.

Mais un professeur de l'université de Nottingham, Hamish Forbes, a repris l'ensemble du dossier. D'abord parce qu'ils ne semblent pas connaître le fumier. Se faisant alors l'archéologue de son jardin, il s'aperçoit que les générations précédentes semblent avoir eu le même problème.

‘The Parthenon Enigma,’ by Joan Breton Connelly

“The repository of the sacred standard, the basis for all measurement in art,” Le Corbusier called it. Its architectural echoes can be seen in our modern-day democratic institutions: the Supreme Court and Treasury building, for instance. The Parthenon, writes Joan Breton Connelly, “has become the icon of western art, the very symbol of democracy itself.” But it’s that very conventional wisdom that Connelly, a professor of classics and art history at New York University, aims to subvert with her new book, “The Parthenon Enigma.” Her theory revolves around the meaning of the original 525-foot-long frieze, located on the exterior colonnade of the temple.
