Museum of Cycladic Art, Athens. 2800-2300 B.C.
"The most prominent craft in Cycladic culture, however, was stone-cutting, especially marble sculpture.The abundance of white, good-quality marble on most of the islands, encouraged its wide use for the creation of artefacts and implements of functional or symbolic nature. Among these, Cycladic Figurines are by far the most distinctive Cycladic creation because of the great numbers in which they are found, the variety of sizes and types and the significance, we may assume, they held for their owners."
