Greece’s Culture Ministry and the Archaeological Resources Fund have launched a collection of textile face masks featuring prints, drawings and photos inspired by the country’s rich cultural heritage.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has brought the protective masks into our daily lives… No one can say with certainty how much longer we will need to wear them. But they don’t need to have a clinical image,” an announcement by the Greek Culture Ministry said.
Masks are of high quality standards and aesthetics and are available at the shops of archaeological sites and museums across the country.
The designs have been inspired by archaeological objects on display at the Archaeological Museums of Olympia, Heraklio and Delphi.
Offered are: animal-shaped offerings ( 8th-7th century BC), the Phaistos Disc (1700-1550 BC), the Minoan bee pendant (18th century BC), early Byzantine mosaic floor (6th century AD), Cycladic marble figurines (2700-2300 BC)
Each mask is sold at 5 euros and are “among the best selling items,” the ministry said.
Is it possible to buy masks online?
I was wondering that too – didn’t check so far
Please let us know if you find out. Selling online would be great for us, who couldn’t make it to Greece this year.🙂
