Description

The best-known art of the 2500 BC period are the marble figures usually called "idols" or "figurines", though neither name is exactly accurate: the former term suggests a religious function which is not agreed on by experts, and the latter does not properly apply to the largest figures, which are nearly life-size. Perhaps the most famous of these figures are the musicians: a harp-player and a pipe-player. These musicians are sometimes considered “the earliest musicians from the Aegean still in existence.”
The majority of these figures, however, are highly stylized representations of the female human form, typically having a flat, geometric quality which gives them a striking resemblance to today's modern art.
