Afterlives : Ancient Greek Funerary Monuments in the Metropolitan Museum of Art Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

In ancient Greece, funerary monuments were visual expressions of mourning that provided the opportunity for the living to commemorate and communicate with the dead.

Today they offer a wealth of information about the deceased and the communities of which they were a part, for example, their status, material aspects of their lives, and how they wanted to be depicted.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has one of the finest collections of Greek funerary monuments outside of Greece.

This richly illustrated volume, by renowned author Paul Zanker, presents more than 50 outstanding examples, created from the 7th to the 2nd century B.C., that represent a variety of media and geographical regions.

Through their shared focus on memorialising the dead, these extraordinary works of art offer insights into all facets of life in ancient Greece.
