Strolling through the galleries of the Archeology Museum in Thessaloníki one can but wonder what happened with the art of carving in the period between Antiquity and Renaissance, when brilliant artists rediscovered the lines of the human body and the techniques necessary to reproduce movement and emotion in stone and marble. The level at which the artists two thousand years ago could recreate in marble the details of a curly hair or the curves of muscles are simply amazing.
The Museum of Thessaloniki gives a chronological look on the development of civilization in Macedonia, with relics even of 200.000 years.
