354 "Mediterranean Princesses" to be Exhibited in the Cycladic Art Museum

Whoever visits the new exhibition of the Cycladic Art Museum, titled “Mediterranean Princesses of the History Dawn: Interpretive issues and approaches to women’s role in the societies of Early Iron Age”, will see the power of women from the 10th century B.C. up until the Archaic period.
Director of the Museum Professor Nikolaos Stampolidis and his colleagues are already making preparations for the exhibition, that will be held under the auspices of the President of the Italian Republic.
The exhibition will be developed by the Museum in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the Directorate of Museums, Exhibitions and Educational Programs.
There will be 354 exhibits from Greek state museums and other foreign museums, that will be borrowed by the Cycladic Art Museum for the duration of the exhibition, which will be held from October 2012 until February 2013.
Who were those women? Noblewomen, princesses, priests, therapists or witches? Women with knowledge that traveled from one area to another or natives, who received local and adopted cultural elements of other societies? All these cases will be examined in the exhibition where findings from some 21 burial sets of women from Greece (Attica, Macedonia, Euboea, Crete), Cyprus, South Italy and Etruria, will be presented, covering the time period from the 10th century BC to the Archaic period (6th century BC).
The exhibits have been selected among prestigious women’s graves, which appear to transfer cultural and ideological elements from their societies.
