have you heard about new discovery of the amphipolis tomb in Greece?
It's a new great archeological discovery of these days. There are rumors that it might be the tomb of the Alexander the great. isn't it exciting?
The new marvelous statues and the mosaic that the archeologist discovered are unique in beauty and design for a tomb of Macedonia. Such a variety of style and majesty has never been discovered in any other tomb of Macedonia. I feel extremely inspired of the story and the architecture of the tomb, and there is hope that there is so much more that the this tomb might be hiding.
When they first announced of the round tomb, I said wow this is something new. And then they found the entrance with two headless sphinxes. After that the two caryatids came to light, I couldn't believe it, such a beauty and detail on that statues, just like the caryatids of the parthenon. And after that a great mosaic with the abduction of Persefone came to light. Unbelievable and incredible combination of art of that days civilization. To combine all that art in one tomb for one person must have been very special. And finally the discovery of the dead that was burried there. He definitely was someone great and beloved by the people to be burried with such an honour and greatness. Too bad that the tomb was robbed and no priceless artifact has found so far. I hope that one day we know who the dead was.
