Acropolis 01 Parthenon by Kevrekidis Acropolis 01 Parthenon by Kevrekidis
The Acropolis of Athens, Greece - Picture 01 of 05

The Parthenon is the most important and characteristic monument of the ancient Greek civilization and still remains its international symbol. It was dedicated to Athena Parthenos, the patron goddess of Athens. It was built between 447 and 438 B.C. The construction of the monument was initiated by Perikles; the supervisor of the whole work was Pheidias, the famous Athenian sculptor, while Iktinos and Kallikrates were the architects of the building. The temple is built in the Doric order and almost exclusively of Pentelic marble.

Πραγματικά, ένας ναός κάτω από το άπλετο Φως. Κάτω από αυτόν τον βράχο απλώνεται το τσιμέντο και η μουντάδα, πάνω στον βράχο απλώνεται το Φως και μόνο.

Ειναι αναμφίβολα το ωραιότερο έργο τέχνης όλων των εποχών...

Τί γνώμη έχεις για το νέο μουσείο της Ακρόπολης;

Η αλήθεια είναι οτι το κτίριο είναι λίγο "απαίσιο"... Και να φανταστείς ότι ο αρχιτέκτονας είναι πολύ γνωστός και καλός....

Πάντως το σημαντικό είναι ότι επιτέλους κατασκευάστηκε ένα μουσείο... Ίσως τώρα έχουμε περισσότερες πιθανότητες να μας επιστραφούν τα γλυπτά του Παρθενώνα... Μακάρι...
