A workshop in Athens produces the only officially-certified replicas of ancient Greek masterpieces which are sold at the country’s archaeological sites, monuments and museums.
The exact copies are made by hand, with great expertise, by talented sculptors, painters, conservationists and craftsmen at Athens’ Archaeological Resources Fund workshop.
Gods and heroes, mortals and immortals are reproduced there, either sculpted in marble or cast in bronze. Talented painters also render the original colors the statues or artifacts were given, and gold leaf is skillfully applied to some of the objects.
The replicas, which are also sent to universities and related institutions for educational purposes, are cast from the originals and bear an official seal attesting to this fact.
Watch the video below to see just how our priceless treasures are painstakingly reproduced for the entire world to enjoy, learn from, and marvel over.
