Linking The Two Shores Of The Aegean
‘ACROSS’, AN EXHIBITION AT THE SAKIP SABANCI MUSEUM, BRINGS THE AEGEAN’S OPPOSITE SHORES TOGETHER.
Across: The Cyclades and Western Anatolia During the 3rd Millenium B.C. is an exhibition about the Cycladic civilization that flourished in the Aegean Sea between 3000 and 2000 B.C. Showcasing the warm relations between Western Anatolia and the Cyclades islands is a total of 340 artifacts that, while similar, yet exhibit regional characteristics. Pots, pans, jugs, pitchers, cups, bowls and teapots as well as axes and swords, necklaces and bracelets, and figurines.
THE MOST SPECTACULAR ITEM IN THE EXHIBITION
One of the most spectacular pieces in the exhibition is a model of a Cycladic ship, for many years the only mode of transportation between the Aegean’s two shores. The 14-foot vessel, built without the use of any nails or adhesives on the principle that its timbers, lashed together with ropes, would expand on contact with the water and lock together, was constructed in keeping with the original design.
