Experience one of ancient Greece’s greatest sculptures.
This remarkable figure of a maiden, or kore, is one of the most intricate and highly decorated statues from ancient Greece. This kore, named Kore 670, created between 520-510 BCE, is considered one of the most important sculptures from the Acropolis in Athens because of its fine detail and preserved colour. In many places the sculpture bears remnants of original paint, inviting us to re-examine our understanding of white marble sculptures and the appeal of colour in the Archaic Age.
