Euphronios, Sarpedon Krater

with the recent events surrounding the buying of looted artifacts by Hobby Lobby, I have seen many say it is okay becasue they were saving them!!!!! what!!!
 
It is never okay to buy stolen merchandise..NEVER. When a musuem does knowingly that is even work in today’s society. Sure things like that happened years ago but we are smarter today, or should be. Hobby Lobby knowingly bought looted artifacts, falsified legal papers, and then lied they were aware.
 
What I want to address is how looting destroys the contextual material that archaeologists need to make determination about the artifact. Once it is ripped out of the ground, the artifact is basically useless…… any musuem knows this.. any legit musuem that is.
 
Here is an excellent example: Sarpedon Krater by Euphronios. This artifact was looted in the early 70’s and sold to the MET under dubious trail trail. This krater became very famous and important especially after it was found to be looted. Finally after some debate the MET released the vase back to Italy. Note the discussion about why looted items lose a part of history and the acquisition of looted items.
 
This piece that is so valuable to history lost a big piece of its history by being looted. So while we can appreciate its beauty, we cannot answer vital questions.
 
Following this video there is additional information on the krater importance and the looting aspects

Yankee Doodle

we took it and made the song American… combining elements from different cultures/factions

Colors of Greece and Rome

Both pure white classic sculptures and sandstone reliefs were a washed in color from Egypt to Greece to Rome. The only reason they are so pristine looking today in lack of color is age… the colors simplicity faded.

In the white marble classic sculptures while yes the technique and structure of the work is exceptional, the emphasis was not to who “white” as a superior color. No in fact most of the work was highly colored, almost to what we would in today’s world call garnish. But once again we must look to the time context where there was a mixture of people in these areas as depicted in the various artworks. So it is not unheard of to have statues/reliefs in varying hues, and all of them would had been a wonderful compliment to the era.

This is really not anything new, as the paint had been noticed and recorded on various sculptures. What is new is the false interpretation of the white being the epitome of Greek or Roman art, the emphasis on perfection of the stone’s color while ignoring the traces of color.  The article stresses that we need to remember the culture of the Greeks and Romans was diverse and their art also being diverse represented that culture. Thus we should see the statues as colorful, vibrant…..

Uncle John Scruggs

Never heard of this gentleman until today so sharing what I learned….

He was born in 1855 to Henry and Betsey Scruggs, both a parents and child were slaves in Buckingham County, Virginia. He became well-known in the 1920’s and 30’s for his banjo playing. He played the 5 string banjo in what is called the clawhammer style which is based on the picking direction.

The folk ballad he is playing and singing is called “Little Log Cabin Round the Lane”  written by Will S. Hays in 1871 for the minstrel trade. The song is written in  a dialect format.  By the mid 1900’s the lyrics and dialect had changed, steering away from the more objectionable wordage.

2013032221165425180

A mural titled “All in the Family II” (located at the Sherrod Library, East Tennessee State University) painted by Marianne DiNapoli-Mylet, pictures John Scruggs between Bill Monroe and Earl Scruggs,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fortunately we do have one film that has survived showing his talent with his grandchildren dancing to his music…  Filmed on November 8th, 1928 in Powhatan, Virginia.

One note that needs to be made…. Fox Movietone News, who created the newsreel has been known to stage musical productions in front of such dilapidated homes or settings. So while the authenticity of the reel footage is questionable as in what the family members wore or where they lived, there is no doubting the talent of Mr. Scruggs and that is the interest here, his skill.
