The bust of a Caryatid (No. 36) from Erechteion, a sixth Caryatid who forms the Portico of the Cariatids, joins the Erechteion temple on the Akropolis in Athens. Original at the British Museum, bought from Lord Elgin. Several interpretations have been proposed for the role of caryatides in construction. The most convincing one supports the idea that they formed the visible part of the Kekrops tomb and were a tribute to his glorious death. The main building and the northern porch were surrounded by a continuous ionic frieze, decorated with pictures of the gods, heroes and mortals. The work is a replica made for the Simu Museum in Bucharest, a building inspired by the look of the Erechteion Temple, but demolished during the communist era. Now is a part of the Simu Collection in the Museum of the Architecture School in Bucharest.
