Sex or symbol?

Author: Catherine Johns
Publisher: British Museum Press
Format: Paperback
Pages: 192

Investigating overt sexual representations in the art of Greek and Roman life, Johns explains that many of the objects which Victorians found shocking were not all intended to have an erotic purpose. Many had a religious and apotropaic function, and also shed light on social mores of the time.
