The Many Lives of a Snake Goddess project invites you to join us for a day focused on these iconic Minoan objects & their modern reception.
About this Event

The Many Lives of a Snake Goddess project invites you to our Dublin workshop. We will explore the multiple lives or 'biographies' of the iconic Minoan Snake Goddess figurines discovered by Sir Arthur Evans during his excavations of the 'Palace of Minos' at Knossos in 1903. Taking a diachronic, multicultural and multisensory perspective, the day will include talks and posters telling the story of archaeological discovery, reconstruction and interpretation (and forgery!); engaging with the modern display of the figures and the multi-facetted modern reception of the Snake Goddesses in visual arts and poetry. We will be sharing new work on communicating the figures through multi-sensory approaches `(audio-description, sign language, & mindful looking) and rounding off the day with Ruth Padel reading her set of 15 short poems, commissioned as part of the project.

Confirmed participants include: Ellen Adams, Catherine Lawless, Nicoletta Momigliano, Christine Morris, Ruth Padel, Mnemosyne Rice.
Further details of programme available soon
