This exhibit features a recently acquired collection of antiquities spanning 4000 years of history.  The objects reflect the importance of motherhood in the mythology of ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, and other Mediterranean cultures.  Ancient stories and artifacts like these have drawn curious pilgrims to the region for centuries.  The figures are displayed in conjunction with Frederic Church: A Painter’s Pilgrimage, focusing on the 1867-69 journey of one such traveler.
