What does Golden Ibex stand for?

The name derives from the Golden Ibex figurine that was discovered in 1999 CE in the ancient city of Akrotiri and now can be seen at the Museum of Prehistoric Thira, Fira.

It was originally placed inside a wooden box within a clay chest and was made using the lost-wax technique.

The legs, neck and tail were soldered on and finishing touches were added using a small hammer, indentations from which remain visible. It’s our love for Santorini island that made us choose the Golden Ibex name as a tribute to the archaeological treasures of Thira.

Perfect Perspective on Santorini! We were here a very short time and wanted to see more than Fira and Oia. Amani was a perfect fit for us! Our tour guide was able to maximize our time and show us things not possible on our own. We enjoyed very much the historical and personal perspectives she was able to share. We are only sorry that our six hours went by so quickly!
