Statues of Athens, Greece | Part I

Posted on 1st February 2014 in adventure, explored, wandering

I’ve been doing a lot of posts about my time in Athens. It’s true, there was so much to see there, so much that fascinated me. So much history, so much mythology. I’d walk the days around just clicking my camera all day.

One art form that I feel doesn’t get enough fame is sculpture. Perhaps it’s because of the length of time a sculpture usually takes. It’s no secret how our world is getting more and more into instant gratification… Athens had some monumental sculpture hundreds of years old. It is always a pretty cool experience for me to walk up and see the face of somebody who’s been gone from this world for many many years. I just wish I could have read the signs to identify who I was looking at!

It shocked me to see some of the busts hit with graffiti. There’s some things that just shouldn’t be done in my books…

This is Part I of my statues series in Athens. Part II is found here.
