Animasyros

Special thanks for this discovery go to fellow archaeologist, prof. Despina Katapoti. 




This is the logo from the International Animation Festival and Forum which is held annually in the Greek island of Syros. 

This is the festival's webpage



The logo is evidently inspired by a Cycladic marble figurine, very cleverly and tastefully used.  

Watch this great video advertising this year's festival.

The Mycenaean pictorial pottery shower curtain

This could very well be the last post on this blog (fear not, it's not). I honestly don't think I'll ever get to see a strangest find than this -though I know life is full of surprises... 

I have studied long and hard many aspects of Mycenaean pictorial vase-painting, but I never thought I'd ever see this shower curtain decorated with a Mycenaean pictorial pottery motif of a hedgehog. 

The curtain is inspired by the fragment of a deep bowl found in Mycenae, decorated with a hedgehog under the handle.
