Looking for illustrations of musical instruments in ancient sculptures and vases!
The ancient Greeks believed that music was an essential part of almost every intellectual, artistic and social activity.
The kit contains copies of ancient instruments: string (a lyre), wind (two auloi with reeds and leather strap [phorbeia], a salpinx, Pan’s syrinx and horn), percussion (a tympanon, cymbals and crotals), as well as printed and audiovisual material. The aim of the kit is to acquaint pupils with types of ancient musical instruments and to recognize illustrations of these in ancient sculpture and vases.
The musical instruments included in the museum kit have been made by G. Polyzos.
