Cycladic gallery

 

The Cyclades are a group of around 30 islands in the Aegean sea, including Naxos and Paros, famous in antiquity for their marble. Cycladic figurines were carved from this marble during the third and second millennia BC, and are among the earliest representations of the human form in western art.

These abstract figures and faces have enormous appeal, due to their simple and evocative form, and their timeless, almost contemporary quality. They have inspired numerous artists, such as Picasso, Modigliani and Moore. Our collection of bronze, marble and keramin figurines and faces is made for us in Greece.

    I would like to purchase a pair of sterling silver stud earrings of the cycladic figure. I owned a pair that I purchased on Amorgos but one was lost. Do you sell the pair shown on your website and how may I go about purchasing the set?

    • Good afternoon, Susan, and our apologies for the tardy reply! We have been moving premises! Sorry to hear about your lost earring. We are hoping to get these earrings back in stock in the next months, so we will let you know. Best wishes, Elinor
