"The Erecthion" Acropolis - Erechtheion-Caryatids Tip by Sharon

 
 

This has captured my eys !
There is something about it, something else... and i was quite facsinated looking at it.
The Erecthion Actually built on the most sacred site of the Acropolis ! where Poseidon and Athena had their contest over who would be the Patron of the city.
