Starting on March 12, 2022, visitors to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) in Toronto, can experience Kore 670 — a gift to a goddess, one of the best-preserved and most stunningly beautiful Korai statues from the Acropolis of Athens.
To celebrate 80 years of Canada-Greece relations, the ROM is taking part in an exchange of exhibits with the Acropolis Museum in Athens, with the Canadians sending two treasured vases to the museum’s Greek collections from June 20, 2022 to January 8, 2023.
In its 2,500-year history of existence, the Kore 670 has left Greece just a very few times.
What is Kore 670?
Kore 670 is a painted figure of a maiden.
