Talking to the Gods: Votive Plaques from Roman Britain

The Gods of the Parthenon: 3D - a new temporary display

This temporary display, curated by Rui Nakamura of Kochi University and Tokyo University of the Arts, explores the gods represented on the Parthenon frieze from a new perspective, by encouraging us to see them as fully-realised three-dimensional figures. The twelve Olympian gods from the frieze are visualised in miniature form, hand-carved and displayed in a semi-circle as if they watch the Panathenaic procession unfolding before them. 

On display now in Bay B.
