Face to Face: Exposing the ROM's 'Minoan' Ivory Goddess

The ROM Goddess on display in the Eaton Gallery of Rome.


Members only. Registration is required.  Space is limited. No waiting list.

The Minoan Ivory Goddess has been a favourite of the ROM's Aegean Bronze Age collection since it came to the Museum in 1931. This beautiful ivory figurine has been believed to be a fake created in the early 20th century. Kate Cooper, Assistant Curator - Pompeii and former Rebanks Research Fellow in Classical Archaeology, will reveal the story and discuss whether science today is able to resolve the question of date. 

The temporary display, part of the ROM100 Centennial celebrations, is accompanied by a research project. Find out more.



Members must be registered as space is limited.

Meet in Chen Court prior to 11 am. Introduction and presentation will begin in Earth Rangers Studio.
