A Kouros and a Woman

Here's a few shots from the national museum, where I was spending the afternoon. Notice that I won't be able to answer any questions next week as I'll be in Argos (I will however be able to post pictures).

A Kouros (big one) from Delos (ca 600 BC) if my memory serves me correctly.

Close up on the head, notice the ear.

A women (Pentelic marble) found in Piraeus. The statue was dedicated to the Mother of the Gods and Aphrodite by Megiste, daughter of Architimos. 1st century Bc.
