Thanks for all the C&C's on my last upload of the main entrance to the Natural History Museum in London.
This selected detail is from part of the Parthenon's north frieze now displayed in the purpose-built Duveen Gallery of the British Museum. The Parthenon Marbles, forming a part of the collection known as the Elgin Marbles, are a group of classical Greek sculptures, inscriptions and architectural members that originally were part of the Parthenon and other buildings on the Acropolis in Athens. Some had previously suggested the marbles were created during the Roman occupancy of Greece, yet modern scholars seem to agree they were most probably created about three hundred years earlier, in the famous workshop of the great sculptor Phidias, around the mid-fourth century BC.
