Tales from Homer - Odds Bodkin @mfaBoston

MUSUEM OF FINE ARTS/BOSTON KRUPP GALLERY (Gallery 215A)

Master storyteller: Odds Bodkin brought the MFA’s “Homer and the Epics” Collection to Life with excerpts from The Odyssey and The Iliad in THREE SPOTLIGHT PERFORMANCES

This podcast contains the 2:00 – 2:15 pm performance of THE STONE-SEALED CAVE:  AN EXCERPT FROM HOMER's  ODYSSEY

In this podcast we hear Pt. 1 of the The Stone-Sealed Cave An Excerpt from The Odyssey recorded during the   2:00 p.m. – 2:15 p.m. performance.

Desperate for seaworthy supplies, Odysseus and his men enter an empty cave where a fire pit smolders and large cheeses speak of shepherds.An immense sleeping mat, however, warns them that a giant lives here, not men. Overcome by curiosity, Odysseus refuses to leave, unaware that they are about to meet Polyphemus the Cyclops, a towering monster with a taste for human flesh.

Three New Galleries Highlighting Greek Wine, Theater and Poetry Open at MFA, Boston, MA. http://www.mfa.org/news/Ancient-Greek-Galleries

MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS, BOSTON  Avenue of the Arts | 465 Huntington Avenue |Boston, Massachusetts 02115 | 617-267-9300  All Spotlight Talks are free with Museum admission.

" The highlight of the Odyssey grouping is a marble Head of Polyphemos (about 150 BC or later). With voluminous, shaggy hair, a deeply furrowed brow, a single, almond-shaped eye between two clenched eye-sockets and parted lips, this head presents Polyphemos as a malformed monster. Also in this section, which features objects that illustrate the journey home of the Greek warrior Odysseus, a Drinking cup (kylix) depicting scenes from the Odyssey (about 560–550 BC) narrates the story of the goddess Circe magically changing the hero’s men into swine on one side, and his escape from Polyphemos on the other.

 

“From Homer’s heroes to the intoxicated ecstasy of Dionysos and his dominion over Greek theater, the visitors to these three new Greek galleries will be reminded of the spoken verses that gave rise to many works of art,” said Christine Kondoleon, George D. and Margo Behrakis Senior Curator of Greek and Roman Art at the MFA. “These galleries offer a cultural context and freshly present some of the best Greek painted vases in the world.”
