Oct. 18 lecture promises to be ‘hair raising’

Can we learn about history from hairstyles? We absolutely can according to a lecture slated to be held at the Bruce Museum. The Caryatid Hairstyles from the Athenian Acropolis: Technique and Meaning will be the subject of Fairfield University Professor Katherine Schwab’s lecture on Thursday, Oct. 18, 8 p.m. at the Bruce. This event will be sponsored by the Archaeological Associates of Greenwich (AAG) and is free to AAG, Bruce Museum members, students with ID and $15 to the public.

The six Caryatids from the south porch, known as the porch of the maidens, of the Erechtheion on the Athenian Acropolis are among the most well known monuments surviving from classical Athens. These six statues that serve as columns have been studied for their pose and clothing, for their origins in treasuries at Delphi, as well as their impact on late Roman Imperial art.
