Cycladic Sculpture

Arch Facial Plast Surg. 2006;8(2):148. doi:10.1001/archfaci.8.2.148

Between the continents of Europe, Africa, and Asia Minor lies the Aegean Sea. The Cyclades are some 30 islands that are, in fact, the peaks of the mountains of the Aegais, a landmass that was submerged nearly 5 million years ago. Much of what is known of Aegean civilization comes to us through Homer's Iliad and Greek legends of Crete. However, Cycladic civilizations flourished hundreds of years before the Trojan War, at about the same time as the early Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations.
