Greek Art

 

Throughout the centuries Greece has managed to become the trade mark for arts and crafts.  Our country has inspired and influenced enormously the evolution of aesthetics in many parts of the world from ancient times until today.


The arts and crafts of Greece have been divided in 5 main categories in order to facilitate their study and these categories are: architecture, sculpture, painting, pottery and jewelry making. Although if we want to peruse more into them it will be necessary to include many subcategories or even new forms of crafts that have evolved through the centuries, such as mosaics, frescoes and wall paintings, music and theatre, weaving, lace making and embroidery etc.


Sample of the arts and crafts of Greece you can see in the hundreds of sites and museums that exist throughout the country. Greece is a paradise of museums, there is an exhibition for every interest, you name it and there is a museum that houses it.

You will be embraced by our team of art professionals that will decipher to you the symbols of the arts and crafts of Greece, while you will be enjoying this enlightening experience by actually standing at the very birthplace of these artifacts.
