Beyond: The Fate of the Soul

“What is the fate of the immortal soul after the death of the mortal body?” This question is one of the greatest mysteries of all time and is the focus of the Museum of Cycladic Art’s new exhibition, entitled Beyond. Death and Afterlife in Ancient Greece.

The exhibition will feature 120 objects from 21 museums in Greece and abroad, including epic descriptions of the Underworld and ancient artworks from a number of different periods.

The exhibition is divided into five thematic units, The Moment of Death, Burial Customs, Homeric Hades, Bacchic-Orphic Hades and Platonic Hades. Through the course of the exhibition, visitors will clearly see the shift in the perception of the divine and the afterlife during the progression from Homeric thinking to Platonic thinking.
