Add this event to your Google Calendar.
One of the most interesting and valuable pieces in the antiquities collection of the recently reopened Museum of Fine Arts is the third-century mosaic from the Roman province of Africa makes guest appearance on giant banner at Müpa Budapest. International art dealers first brought the work from Tunisia to France, from where it ended up among the possessions of the Hungarian Museum of Fine Arts.
He could tame even wild beasts with his music, and the image of this divine minstrel harking back to the harmony of a golden age offered many different possibilities for interpretation that varied by period, region and intellectual tradition. This can be clearly seen in how the figure of Orpheus would also be adapted into early Christian art as it evolved, as one of the acceptable ways of depicting Christ.
