A few years ago I had the opportunity to visit the British Museum, where I could contemplate its collections, one of them on Greece, numerous pieces, from friezes, marble statues or ceramic Kylix.
Now an exhibition brings some of those pieces to Seville, specifically to Caixa Forum.
With the name “Agon Competition in Ancient Greece”, from last March 21 to June 17, this unique and unrepeatable exhibition will remain.
At the entrance we will find the winged Nike with clothes stirred by the wind, this impressive marble statue of 100 a.c. (Current Halicarnassus Turkey).
We can also see a block of a frieze with the scene of a battle between Greeks and Amazons of the mausoleum of Halicarnassus.
We will know how the competition was in ancient Greece, discovering its heroes, athletes and warriors.
We will learn how was their daily life, through their artistic representations, either through sculptures or their ceramics. Where the most representative stories and myths are narrated, such as Hercules and his famous works, the Trojan War or the Judgment of Paris.
The theatrical and musical contests that attracted spectators from different places just to see them and enjoy the works of writers such as Aeschylus, Euripides, Sofokles or Aristofanes.
A unique way to learn more about Greek culture.
You can not lose this!
