The de Meyer's on the Acropolis, 1890s by Adolf de Meyer

απο το περικαλλές timeline του Kyriakos Anastasiadis The de Meyer's on the Acropolis by Adolf de Meyer circa 1890

The Erechtheion at The Acropolis, was built around 420 BC. The famous "Porch of the Caryatids" or "Porch of the Maidens" contains 6 beautifully ornate columns of women supporting the roof on their heads. I was mesmerized by this temple. The detail in the sculpture is amazing. Each of the 6 women are unique and feminine, with each tunic they wear are draped in a different way. — in Athens, Greece.

Nelly Nikolska at the Acropolis / Nelly's view of Greece. Her photos appeared in official tourist publications circulated abroad contributing to creating the earliest visual symbols of Greece’s "philosophy regarding tourism". She systematically depicted ancient monuments and sites. Her experiments with natural light and her photographs of ancient temples are still true masterpieces.
