Ceramic Sculpture Greek Mythology
Classical Greek Art, Literature, History, Myths and Legends and the many traditions of Ancient Greece have always fascinated me and have inspired these figurative sculptures. Ancient Greek vases, especially the wonderful collection in the British Museum in London, give great enjoyment and suggest endless opportunities for creativity. They depict fabulous stories of Gods, heroes and many characters and the adventures they undergo exploring universal themes just as relevant today.
