"Caryatids" Acropolis - Erechtheion-Caryatids Tip by Jmill42

  The Caryatids
by Jmill42
 
 

Sometimes referred to as the Porch of the Maidens, the south side of the Erechtheion contains the statues know as the Caryatids. These are the famous statues in the image of females in gowns flowing in the wind. What you see today are replicas and the originals are located only steps away in the Acropolis Museum.

Side Note: Not ALL of the Caryatids are located there, as one is located in London.
