Abstract:
“Costumes of wordly and religious leaders have multiple layers of meaning. Firstly, there is the aspect of ‘dress to impress’, often by making the person look larger than others. Secondly, there are ways of ‘reading’ the costume and its details. For the outsider it will be clear that he/she is dealing with a king, queen or bishop, but the insiders will be able to distinguish more details, hidden in attributes and decorations. How far are we, as researchers, able to go into this non-verbal language of costumes of authority? A case study from Nubia as a foretaste of a new research project.”

Dr hab. Dobrochna Zielińska at the Archaeo-Oriental Seminar

We invite you on Monday (09 May) at 11:30 AM to the Archaeo-Oriental Seminar, where dr hab. Dobrochna Zielińska (from the Faculty of Archaeology) will give a lecture on “Nubian Authorities in Painted Church Decoration”.
Abstract:
Monumental representations of Nubian authorities are one of the most characteristic features of Nubian art. This tradition has been also continued in Medieval Nubia and portrait representations of most important figures for the kingdom of Makuria became part of the iconographical programme in Nubian churches. This presentation will be an overview of monuments where such representations are preserved. Also places in the sacral interiors where these portraits were located will be discussed, as well as character of these representations. The state of research on this topic will be presented, as well as the analysis that initiated a new project developed at the University of Warsaw.
