The Story of Early Greek Art
All over the world, and throughout the centuries, people have always
used their creativity and imagination to express their beliefs,
customs and traditions in an aesthetic form, which we call art.
The visual or intellectual experience of this art touches us deeply
and in ways that sometimes we find it hard to explain even to ourselves.
The reason is that, these objects, mysteriously and profoundly communicate
to us their drama and their story; the story of the human experience,
which we are all part of, regardless of our age, culture, race or
religion, and in which we all — consciously or unconsciously — feel
In this presentation, through an abundance of images from Early
Greek Art, we will be guided through such a story; the story of
power and weakness, religion and politics, family and friendship,
love and hatred, life and death, achievement and defeat, joy and
grief, beauty and ugliness, dignity, virtue, morality.
At the end, we will all feel as though Greek Art has just provided
us with one of those mirrors through which we were able to see and
understand better the story of our own lives, we were able to see
and understand ourselves.
