Ashmolean master

So, after a quick breakfast and then a faff at the Byzantine museum, we went off to the Cycladic Museum. I like the figurines, although I never seem to get too excited about them. I hate the fact that most of the stuff in here is re-patriated nicked stuff and hence has no solid provenace. I am a pidgeonholing cataloguing sort of guy, and where and how things were unerathed is important to me.

Jockey in one of his favourite places - the Cycladic Museum in Athens, with all the funky cycladic figurines around.
