An inspiring approach to Cycladic culture by prominent authority on Cycladic archaeology, Prof. Lord C. Renfrew, former director of the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research at Cambridge University. Through 18 chapters, richly illustrated with colour photos of MCA exhibits, Colin Renfrew explores not only the history of the early Cyclades but also the artistic value and symbolic significance of Cycladic figurines, as well as their influence on modern art and aesthetics.
