Picture from the met

Things got a little sideways. Here is one of the met picture of a happy guy with a hap. I think he was from the very first pre-historic room.

Oh it's a harp! I thought for a minute he was unusually well endowed and preternaturally flexible ;)

It does have something of that look! (Might be why he seems so happy! He is a strangely modern looking guy to be placed where he is. He would fit right into a midcentury 2oth century design magazine.

Yes I can definitely see him in some chi chi design magazine like wallpaper*

I went to the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens years ago and was completely blown away by the modernism of these figures. I had a picture of one on my office wall for many years. It's a bit freaky when you see a lot of them together though, it's a bit like being surrounded by tiny aliens. The museum definitely had something of the mothership about it :}
