Painted Ladies: Phrasiklea

Before the Archaeological Museum in Athens re-opened, for years no one was allowed to photograph Phrasiklea, so many scholars don't have good photos of her. Although she was not 'painted' for the Colored Marble exhibition, she was excavated in very good condition with traces of color. On her dress, the pattern of the fabric was also emphasised by carving.
