Art History

Since early prehistoric times, Cyprus has been a way station for ships circulating around the eastern Mediterranean. Sailors, warriors, and merchants of many nationalities, including Greeks, Phoenicians, Egyptians, and Persians, passed through Cyprus, established settlements there, or took control of the island. The exposure of Cypriot craftsmen to a wide range of materials from both East and West is reflected in the jewelry styles that emerged in Cyprus.
