Artist's Description

The women shaped pillars of the Erechtheum forming a portico on the Acropolis in Athens, Greece, have an interesting history. Sometime in the ealry 19th century, Lord Elgin took one of the ladies to London where she is today in fairly good shape. The remaining five were subjected to the wear and tear of the elements, acid rain, and other pollutants, and began to look like melted wax figures. In 1979 they were placed in a nitrogen filled tank in the Acropolis Museum to preserve what’s left. The five figures there on the portico today are plaster replicas.
