Vanity – 7.000 years of Cycladic jewellery

The Ephorate of Antiquities of Cyclades is inaugurating the first major temporary inter-Cycladic exhibition at the Archaeological Museum of Mykonos, entitled: Vanity. Stories of Jewellery in the Cyclades. The exhibition presents representative jewellery from the Cyclades, in a historical sequence extending across 7 millennia, from the Neolithic jewelry of the 6th millennium B.C. to the 1970s.

Diadems, hair rings and earrings, necklaces and pendants, fibulas and pins, finger rings and bracelets made from shells, bone and ivory, common and semi-precious stones, glass, faience, and coral as well as of bronze, silver and gold reveal human beings’ eternal need to adorn their body, hair, and clothing to draw attention and beguile, to stand out, to assert themselves, to attract auspicious powers, or to avert evil.

di@drasis is currently commisioned to create the promotional video for the exhibition.
