To celebrate its tenth anniversary
the Acropolis Museum has produced
a special, time limited range of products
featuring the crane in flight,
inspired by a rare softly coloured depiction
of the bird seen on the cornice of the first Parthenon (570 BC).
For the ancient Greeks the crane symbolized
intelligence, astuteness and good fortune.
A silk scarf was produced in pastel colours,
and 2 plates with their matching mugs
-in white and dark blue.
Specially designed for the New Acropolis Museum and exclusively sold at the boutique of the Acropolis Museum, Athens.
