The Greeks are coming – Neos Kosmos
The Greeks arrive but not in their black boats. They arrive on a mission of peace, beauty and learning.
Ancient Greeks: athletes, warriors and heroes includes 170 objects that relay an ancient and enduring story of the bravery and competitive spirit of our ancestors.
Among them are also images and figures from everyday life such as the ancient statuette of women playing knucklebones.
We Hellenes prospered in the arts, sport and battle. We have inspired excellence in music and theater. Competition underpinned all aspects of ancient Greek life that sparked a universal civilization, of which we are the heirs and which we have offered to all.
The winged goddess of victory, Nike, (500BCE) will honor us, the magnificent Aphrodite (100CE) will seduce us and we will be amazed by the athleticism of the magnificent Discus Thrower. The magnificent 500 BCE silver and gold tassel necklace might as well be as new as anything we see now. From the ethereal and the sublime to the commitment and the daily, we will enter our past.
This impressive collection of the British Museum should not be missed.
The program includes visits to Greek schools, discussions and much more.
It is not often that we have the chance to see some of the most important artifacts of ancient Greece whose impact has been both profound and universal. It is an auspicious occasion and we, at Neos Kosmos are honored to be one of the supporters of Athletes, warriors and heroes of ancient Greece.
