Old and forgotten...

Some of you probably know what this presents, but maybe not so much what it actually is. Well, it presents Centauromachy - which is a battle between the Centaurs and Lapiths, the famous story from Greek mythology. I really love Greek mythology and all the stories because it presents such an intriguing world. But, this actually is the plaster cast of the original Greek metope from the Parthenon now placed in the British museum. This photo I took at the Zagreb Faculty of humanities and social sciences which holds  the most interesting and valuable collection of plaster casts made from the originals in London, Berlin and Greece.
