antiquities, samos

 some headless women, too much to drink me thinks. haha
 kouross, one of many. He was huge.
 The griffen of greek myth.  There were heaps of these too. They were used to decorate couldrens. Just like in Harry Potter!
A corinthian helmet, worn by warriors. Scary isnt it

I love museums! That helmet looks like it would make your neck stiff, from being so heavy. I hope you are enjoying every moment!

Oh what a thrill to get to the museum - sounds like you are being looked after by all the relations.

Love Leanne
