Museum of Cycladic Art
Among the most unusual forms of art around are the prehistoric idols found on the Cycladic Islands. These strange-looking statues dating back to the 4th and 3rd millennium BC are of an almost extra-terrestrial beauty. Splendid samples of this art form can be found at the Nicholas P. Goulandris Foundation, Museum of Cycladic Art. The museum also includes a collection of ancient art dating from the 2nd millennium BC to the 4th century AD with sculptures, pottery, jewelery, coins, and other items. Reproductions of Cycladic idols can be bought at the museum store.
