THE STORY

The ancient Cycladic culture flourished in the islands of the Aegean Sea from 3300 - 1100 BC. Along with the Minoan civilization and Mycenaean Greece, the Cycladic era is counted among the three major Aegean cultures. The Cycladic art therefore comprises one of the three main branches of the Aegean art.

The very well-known Cycladic figures (usually called idols or figurines) were almost exclusively made from slim rectangular pieces of marble using an abrasive such as emery which is almost as hard as diamond and was available in the island of Naxos. Although different forms were produced, all share the same characteristics of being highly stylized with only the most general and prominent body features represented. The earliest examples were produced in the Neolithic period. These pieces of art are part of the few tangible remains of a culture which no longer exists.
