The Giants of Mont'e Prama
In march1974, in the central-western Sardinia
in Mont’e Prama area near Cabras just two kilometres from Mare Pontis pond, important nuragic sculptures have been discovered in a plowed field.
The statues are carved out in chalky sandstone and their height changes from 2 to 2.5 metres. During the excavations carried out between 1975 and 1979, a total of 5178 fragments of the statues were found.
The Giganti (Giants) have been restored in the Center of Restoration and Conservation of cultural heritage of Li Punti in Sassari. Restorers and archaeologists have brought the Giganti back to life with careful and painstaking work that lasts four years; 28 statues have been recomposed: Archers, Warriors, Boxers.
They have marked nose and eyebrows, big eyes composed by concentric circles to express power and magic.
In March 2014, a number of Giganti has returned at the National and Archaeological Museum of Cabras.
The Giganti date back between VII – X century BC as there is no evidence of Greek statues during that period, the Giganti may well be the most ancient of the Mediterranean basin. T
his archaeological discovery is hugely important not just for Sardinia but for all the geographic area between Greece and the Atlantic.
The Giganti of Mont’e Prama are the only gift offered to us by the nuragic world, and are currently exhibited at the Civic Museum of Cabras and at the National Archaeological Museum of Cagliari.
TheFarmhouse Sa Ruda Sa Ruda farmhouse is located 2 km from the archaeological site of Mont’e Prama and 7 km from the Civic Museum of Cabras.
