Animal-Shaped Vessels From the Ancient World: Feasting With Gods, Heroes, and Kings

By Ebbinghaus, Susanne and A. Cassandra Albinson

Cambridge: Harvard Art Museum, 2018. Hardcover. New in shrinkwrap.. Gray cloth boards with inlaid color illustration and stamped lettering in white and gray. 402 pp. Illustrations, maps. Vessels shaped as bulls, lions, birds, donkeys, and other animals were routinely used to pour and drink liquids at feasts throughout the ancient world. Bringing together animal-shaped vessels from Asia, the Mediterranean, the Near and Far East, and the Americas, this fascinating cross-cultural study is the first large-scale consideration of this phenomenon. Experts from around the world reveal how these entertaining, often extremely lifelike vessels functioned not only as feasting paraphernalia but also as ritual implements, symbols of social status, and objects of artistic exchange and experimentation. Taking up questions ranging from the mechanics of drinking from such unwieldy containers to considerations of what the preference for these shapes says about the nature of human-animal relationships, this books uses a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to offer a unique window onto the experiences of the individuals and communities who raised up these magnificent objects in pleasure and in praise.

By Neils, Jenifer

New Haven: Yale University press, 2003. Hardcover. As New. Color pictorial dustjacket over tannish cloth. 333 pp. 170 color, 253 bw plates. Catalog of an exhibition held at Hood Museum of Art, Aug. 23-Dec. 14, 2003 and other locations. Contents as follows: Childhood in ancient Greece -- Children in Aegean prehistory -- The changing face of childhood -- Fathers and sons, men and boys -- Mothers and daughters -- Children and Greek religion -- Death and the child. "What was childhood like in ancient Greece? What activities and games did Greek children embrace? How were they schooled and what religious and ceremonial rites of passage were key to their development? These fascinating questions and many more are answered in this groundbreaking book. "Coming of Age in Ancient Greece" presents an entirely new perspective by showing that the Greeks were the first culture to represent children and their activities naturalistically in art. Here we learn about depictions of children in myth as well as life, from infancy to adolescence. This beautifully illustrated book features such archaeological artifacts as toys and gaming pieces alongside images of them in use by children on ancient vases, coins, terracotta figurines, bronze and stone sculpture, and marble grave monuments. Essays by eminent scholars present a wide range of topics." -- From publisher's descirption.

Petra Rediscovered: The Lost City of the Nabataeans

By Markoe, Glenn

New York: Abrams, 2003. Hardcover. New in shrinkwrap.. Navy cloth boards, color-illustrated dust jacket with brown and white lettering. 288 pp. Color illustrations, maps. "For more than four centuries the ancient kingdom of Petra, with its magnificent temples and rock-cut tombs, flourished at the intersection of two major trade routes running from Syria to the Red Sea and from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean. The Romans absorbed Petra into their empire in 106 a.d., and in 363 a.d. an earthquake left the city in ruins, forgotten in the West until European explorers rediscovered it in the 19th century. Today-largely as a result of the astonishing finds from ongoing archaeological excavations-this beautiful site has become one of the most visited tourist destinations in the Middle East. Petra Rediscovered brings us the discoveries from those excavations, in a spectacular volume that accompanies a major traveling exhibition on the history and art of this evocative ancient city."
