Exploring a wonderful sculptural ensemble.
The Parthenon Frieze is a continuous relief band running along the top part of the main temple, within the outer colonnade. Its subject was the procession to the Acropolis that took place during the Great Panathenaia, the festival held in honour of the goddess Athena. The aim of the museum kit is to acquaint pupils with this wonderful sculptural ensemble from the classical period.
The museum kit includes a small model of the Parthenon, plastic moulds of the west friezeblocks at a scale of 1:20 and of the head of the goddess Iris from the eastern frieze at full size, a photographic reproduction of the entire frieze and photographs of selected blocks, digital visual material, educational leaflets and books.
The pupils can play, make their own casts and further explore the frieze with the online application.
