A striking pendant, inspired by Cycladic figurines, originally carved in marble, that were produced during the third millennium BC.
These elegant figures are remarkable for their abstract simplicity, believed to have inspired modern day artists such as Picasso and Moore.
Cycladic art originates from the Cyclades, a group of islands in the southwestern Aegean, comprising some thirty small islands, including Naxos and Paros, which were known for the quality of their marble. The ancient Greeks called these islands the Kyklades, imagining them as a circle (kyklos) around the sacred island of Delos, the site of the holiest sanctuary to Apollo and the island thought to be the birthplace of the god and his twin sister Artemis.
