Happy New Year *CGA style

*CGA= Consuming Greek Antiquity abbreviation :)

I saw many postcards made by Greek archaeologists using ancient Greek elements to wish everyone for the holidays. 
But these kinds of choices are to be expected. 

I much prefer to borrow a postcard sent by the mayor of Phaistos who ingeniously used the Phaistos disc as a Christmas tree ornament thus also giving it a three-dimensional quality as a spherical object. 


I wish everyone a very happy and productive New Year and may we keep discovering and discussing together more examples of the ancient Greek culture made by modern consumers for a long time.

Actually the original object is rather a magic globe - for illusionists - than a humble disc for archaeologists. Happy new year!!!
