In the Galleries: the Goddess Shield

Thursday, March 4, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.

This talk introduces an important new AMAM acquisition: the Goddess Shield. This beautifully painted shield, made in Northern India in the mid-19th century, is covered with images of warrior goddesses. But why? What did they represent? And who would have owned it? Join Kevin R. E. Greenwood, Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art, for this lively presentation.

The video will appear in our Facebook feed, and on our Vimeo page. Contact the Education Department at 440-775-8671 with any questions.
