Ancient Cypriot Art is an impressive example of how cultural mixing and fusion can result in favorable outcomes. It creatively combines local traditions with influences from the Aegean, Egypt, and the Near East, reflecting the constant interactions between the various Mediterranean cultures in antiquity.
The Exhibition of Cypriot art in the Museum of Cycladic Art, one of the largest outside Cyprus, presents the Th. N. Zintilis Collection. The Exhibition includes rare prehistoric figurines, Archaic and Classical sculptures, inscriptions, bronze objects, coins, impressive gold jewelry, glass objects, and various types of clay vessels dating from the 4th millennium BC to medieval times.
