Priestess of Delphi (Limited Edition)
Purchase a professional reproduction of the Priestess of Delphi—painted in 1891 by Honourable John Collier—framed in a premium, limited edition Italian hardwood embossed moulding.
For centuries the Village of Delphi, Greece—located in central Greece along a slope on Mount Parnassus—was home to Oracles, also known as Pythia, who legend has it would be a medium for the God Apollo (the God of Prophecy). Merchants, army leaders, and even Roman Emperors have visited the Oracles at Delphi over the years to gain seminal advice.
Famously, the phrase "Know Thyself" is attributed to an inscription found at the Temple of Delphi.
