Sunday Reads: Ditto

I’ve got plenty of links for you today, the only thing is…I can’t remember if these links have been shared already. All the days and news horrors meld together, it has become so difficult to make sense of anything.

Be sure you watch this clip, so you can have a good laugh before the serious news links hit like bricks.

    “She Who Wrote: Enheduanna and Women of Mesopotamia,” opening June 2021, brings together for the first time a comprehensive selection of artworks that capture rich and shifting expressions of women’s lives in ancient Mesopotamia during the 3rd millennium B.C. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One particularly remarkable woman who wielded considerable religious and political power was the high priestess and poet Enheduanna (ca. 2300 B.C.), the earliest-named author in world literature. Bringing together a spectacular collection of her texts and images, this exhibition celebrates her timeless poetry and abiding legacy as an author, priestess, and woman.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ——⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On view June 18, 2021⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fragment of a vessel with frontal image of a goddess⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mesopotamia, Sumerian⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Early Dynastic IIIb period, ca. 2400 BC ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cuneiform inscription in Sumerian⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Basalt; 9 7/8 × 7 5/16 × 1 9/16 in.

      JJ! Thank you for finding this! I probably would not have known as I’m not much of a social media person. I will definitely follow this and try to attend virtually. It’s fascinating that we know so much about a person who lived 4500 years ago and she’s a SHE!!!
