From ancient to modern : archaeology and aesthetics by New York University( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As archaeologists unearth the past, they seek meaning or purpose for the objects they uncover by looking at the objects themselves and their archaeological context. Art historians, on the other hand, primarily focus on aesthetics, asking why a particular object stimulates our senses, and what that tells us about ourselves. From Ancient to Modern offers a lens for understanding ancient objects through the perspectives and processes of both archaeology and aesthetics, and, in so doing, illuminates the multiple layers of meaning that a single object can take on--sometimes simultaneously--over the course of its existence. This beautifully illustrated volume is the accompanying catalog for the exhibition at New York University's Institute for the Study of the Ancient World and focuses on fifty objects from three iconic sites in the ancient Near East: Ur, Diyala, and Kish. The excavation, unique characteristics, and transformative journey of each object--from archaeological artifact to aesthetic item--are examined. Select contemporary artworks are also considered in the investigation of how ancient objects acquire meaning in the present day."--Publisher's website

Sealing at the edge of third millennium middle Asian interaction spheres: The view from Gilund, Rajasthan, India by Marta Elena Ameri( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seals and sealings from Gilund provide an important corpus of material that is used to discuss the mechanisms of transfer of administrative technologies and iconographies across great distances. While the materials from Gilund were locally produced, the foreign origin of the sealing technology and the iconography is clear. Additionally, chronological analysis of the material shows that the local production was affected by the constantly shifting patterns of Indo-Iranian contact. This suggests that the towns of the Ahar-Banas were not as isolated from the interconnected world of third and early second millennium Middle Asia as previously believed. This dissertation is a study of the how people at the furthest edges of an interaction sphere are affected by and react to the changes at their borders and has two principal aims: (a) to describe and classify the glyptic system used in the Ahar-Banas, both in terms of iconography and function; and (b) to determine the origins of the technologies and iconographies found at these sites and the mechanisms and routes by which they arrived
