Sculpting The Figure Across Time: The Ancient Mediterranean World (Remote)

Professional Staff, Cleveland Museum of Art
Thursdays, January 27 - March 3
10-11 a.m. ET

This six-session course offers a focused look at figurative sculpture in the ancient Mediterranean world using the museum’s collection, with an emphasis on cultures and geographic areas such as Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. These ancient cultures created figurative art to share their religious beliefs, including the gods they worshipped; their visions of what takes place after death; and also record the experiences of those who lived on earth. A closer look at their depictions of the human form demonstrates a universal desire to record images of themselves as well as the inhabitants of the living and spiritual realms. Although we find religious and artistic differences across these cultures, we also find many human connections that span time and location.
