Archaeological Museum of Delphi:
Remnants of three chryselephantine statues depicting perhaps the Delian triad- Apollo, Artemis, Leto. The statues were riveted to a wooden core with the faces, hands and feet rendered in ivory with golden decorations and jewellery. Apollo’s and Artemis’ features have been restored with wax but retain their original characteristics. The statues are probably the work of an Ionian or Samian workshop (6th century B.C).
They were discovered in 1939, after the grand excavation among other offerings from the cities of Ionia. The building within they were kept had been destroyed in the 5th century B.C. The finds were found amidst charcoal and ashes.
