The Doric Classroom  (600 - 338 B.C.)

               

 

The sunken aquares in the raftered ceiling depict the sun of Greece, blazing down from eternally blue skies. The painted ridges etched into the walls give a realistic impression of the stone building blocks. The bronze door is a reproduction of the door at the Tower of Mycenae. Both the teacher's chair feature Doric columns and the cupboard too.
