From september 19 2003 to january 5 2004
These small figures in terra cotta discoverd by chance in the XIXth century in Tanagra in Beotie, created a real craze. The 240 small statues presented trace the birth of the myth of "Tanagra", a sort of ideal of feminine beauty, and invite the spectator to discover the antique reality of their making.
