travel theme: extraordinary

Within the castle of Girne (N. Cyprus) is a studio where reproductions of some of Cyprus’ bronze age artifacts are sold. They are based on some of the originals to be found in the museum of Lefkosa/Nicosia. What I find so extraordinary is that these beautiful objects were being created at the same time as the UK, for example, was still in the grips of its own bronze age which produced nothing similar.

From where did the artisans get their inspiration and the know-how to create such sophisticated and intricate pieces?
