Dancing with the Bull

Friday, October 11, 2019

The excavation of Knossos, one of the most important sites of the ancient world, is inextricably linked with Sir Arthur Evans. Evans discovered the ruins of a monumental complex and the remains of a hitherto unknown civilization, formulating the prevailing view of it. Inspired by Evans’ work, artist Teresa Valavani has created a collage collection entitled Dancing with the Bull: Sir Arthur Evans and the palace of Knossos, to be exhibited in the garden of the Knossos Research Centre of the British School at Athens, Villa Ariadne, Knossos. The exhibition will be presented by Honorary Ephor of Antiquities Dr Andonis Vasilakis.
