Ashmolean Research

As part of the Exhibition Project, today I went to the Ashmolean to do some initial research. In particular I really liked the Roman casts as they are representations of the ‘ideal’ rather than the reality – I find this to be an interesting concept.

I also really liked a pair of stone lions from the Aegean area. I like these on an aesthetic appeal, but its purpose is quite interesting too – used to protect tombs of the dead.
