Today was the last day of the exhibition of Antikythera Shipwreck by Athens National Archaeological Museum and it was my last opportunity to admire sculptures and luxurious items, ceramic, glass and bronze vessels, coins, jewelry, parts of a bed and parts of the shipwreck itself.
Here you can see some parts of bodies that have been destroyed in the sea.
Glyphadia on the Greek island Antikythera.Many of the statues were partly destroyed.
But still their details look amazing.
As you can see the one side of the face is almost ruined but the other half is untouched by time.
I captured the same statues with different views so you can have a clearer image of the creation.
The most important discovery of the shipwreck was the world's oldest known analog computer, the Antikythera Mechanism!This ancient mechanism was designed to calculate astronomical positions.
It was an amazing day and I really enjoyed learning the Greek history :) Have you been lately in an interesting exhibition?
