Athenian Treasury - by Papermau - Next Project


My next model is a little Greek temple in Athens. I want to thanks my Polish friend, Mr. Slawomir Jachowicz (Slawo), for the support to build this model.

Meu próximo modelo será este pequeno templo em Atenas. Eu gostaria de agradecer ao meu amigo Slawomir Jachowicz (Slawo) da Polônia, pelo inestimável apoio neste modelo.

The Real Thing
The Athenian Treasury at Delphi was constructed by the Athenians to house dedications made by their city and citizens to the sanctuary of Apollo. The entire treasury, including its sculptural decoration, is built of Parian marble; its date of construction is disputed, scholarly opinion ranging from 510 to 480 BC. Pausanias mentions the building in his account of the sanctuary, claiming that it was dedicated from the spoils of the Battle of Marathon, fought in 490 BC. The building was excavated by the French School at Athens,  and reconstructed from 1903-1906. - Wikipedia


O Tesouro de Atenas é um pequeno templo em estilo dórico, construído em comemoração á vitória dos atenienses na batalha de Marathon em 490 - 480 a.C. Todo coberto com inscrições das glorias de Atenas e agradecimentos da cidade de Atenas ao deus Apolo. Ele é todo construído em mármore. Os chamados Tesouros eram pequenas construções semelhantes a templos onde se guardavam os oferecimentos, presente e donativos que frequentemente eram muito valiosos.
