Presentation of the A.D. Bangham FRS Life Achievement Award to Dr. Walter Shaw by Gregory Gregoriadis in the presence of Mrs Rowena Shaw

About the award: Original Cycladic figurines, carved in marble were produced during the third millennium BC. They were remarkable for their abstract simplicity which is believed to have inspired artists such as Pablo Picasso and Henry Moore. Cycladic art originates from the Cyclades, a group of some thirty islands ‎in the Aegean sea including Naxos and Paros, known for the quality of their marble. The ancient Greeks called these islands the Kyklades, imagining them as a circle (Kyklos) around the island of Delos, the sanctuary of the God Apollo.

The present award, a bronze Cycladic head mounted on marble, is a reproduction of an original at the National Archaeological Museum of Athens. It has been cast using the traditional “lost wax” method. As this is not mass-produced, there are slight variations in patination and colour.

‎Each piece, therefore, is unique.
