Virtual Saturday Sampler Tour | Animals in the Kelsey

Saturday, May 8, 2021
2:00-3:00 PM
Virtual
Saturday Sampler tours are back! We've missed you and are thrilled to be offering our Saturday Sampler tours virtually. Join us over Zoom to explore the Kelsey Museum from the comfort of your home.

The theme of this week's tour is "Animals in the Kelsey."
Animals abound in the art and artifacts of the ancient Near East, Greece, Egypt, and Rome. On this guided tour, learn more about different aspects of animals in antiquity. We'll take a look at animal-themed artifacts in the Kelsey and ask: Was that animal food? A laborer? A pet? A sacrificial victim? We'll also discuss what kinds of animals were symbols of power and strength, and the meanings different animals had in the ancient world.
