Thera's Ancient Eruption

Vanessa Barklay

Ravenshoe, Australia

Artist's Description

Created in Bryce, inspired by Santorini, or ancient Thera, the island in the Aegean Sea that erupted with such volcanic force in the Bronze Age the middle of the island disintegrated leaving only a circular rim of volcanic caldera. Many ancient murals and buildings have been excavated on Thera, once called Calliste, showing it once to have been a thriving culture of ancient mariners, possibly even the inspiration for Plato’s Atlantis.
