Myrtis as an inspiration

 Myrtis, the ancient Athenian girl “reconstructed” grace to modern technology is now a source for artistic inspiration. Thirty artists, including D. Mytaras, P. Adam-Veleni, O. Aggelidou and others created paintings based on the story of the girl with the two lives, and her story.
Their work is offered as support to the research of Prof. M. Papagregorakis on ancient DNA, which “brought Myrtis to life”.
