Eros and Dionysus: Love, Beauty, and Living Well on Late Antique Textiles
The ancient Mediterranean world was alive with textiles. Fabrics made of wool, linen and silk clothed bodies, defined identities, contained treasures, decorated streets and places of entertainment, and enlivened the homes of rich and poor. This illustrated lecture examines the craft, uses and significance of ancient textiles. Select pieces of the Late Antique Egyptian textiles from the Hearst collection will be discussed.
