Workshop of the gods

This Greek terracotta workshop produces mythical figures, deities and beasts. See pics

Haralambos Goumas is a man who fashions gods out of clay — a reversal of most ancient creation myths in which the gods make the men. Over the past half-century, Goumas, 67, has produced thousands of large terracotta statues of ancient Greek deities, mythical figures and fabulous beasts, mostly for use as architectural and garden ornaments.

They are a rare survival of a vanishing art in recession-plagued Greece, all made by hand using traditional techniques in a western Athens workshop.
