Between Art and Life in the Second Millenium BC: the Unusual Tale of the Aegean Argonaut

Emily Catherine Egan is Assistant Professor of Ancient Eastern Mediterranean Art and Archaeology will explore depictions of marine life in the art of Late Bronze Age Greece (ca. 1600–1100 BC). Amid a survey of sea creatures including octopods, dolphins, and fish, special attention is given to the enigmatic argonaut motif and its appearance in the wall paintings of the Mycenaean ‘Palace of Nestor’ at Pylos. Focus is divided between the motif’s “meaning” in its various contexts, and the ways in which its painted depictions, when viewed closely, offer exciting insight into the thought processes and working.
