caryatis.

The Six Maidens of Ancient Karyes, Laconia Greece. The Six Sisters, daughters of the architect/builder of the temple, models for the sculptured female columns that supported The Erechtheion at the Acropolis of Athens for thousands of years.

Five of the Six Caryatids stand in the Acropolis museum,waiting, with a place reserved for their one sister that doesn’t stand alongside them any longer. She stands alone, in the London museum, longing to go home.
