Photographer's Note

Delphi Museum is small and full of marvelous pieces too. This is an image in ivory and gold of Artemis, there is another of his brother Apollo at side. These sculptures probably were burned in a fire and buried by respect. This smile has more than 2 thousand years.
.............................

O Museu de Delfos pequeno mas possui peas de arte fantsticas. Vemos aqui uma escultura de Artemis, feita em marfim e ouro, ao lado dela h outra escultura de Apolo, seu irmo. Estas peas eram oferendas ao orculo de Delfos e foram destrudas num incndio; por respeito os fiis as enterraram e por isso foram descobertas. Este sorriso tem mais de dois mil anos.
