Spellbound: Magic, Ritual & Witchcraft

Ashmolean Museum
August 31, 2018 @ 10:00 am - January 6, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

This is the Ashmolean's first exhibition to examine how magical thinking has been practised over the centuries. With exquisitely engraved rings to bind a lover, enchanted animal hearts pierced with nails, mummified cats concealed in walls and many other intriguing objects, this exhibition shows that our use of magic is driven by our strongest emotions: the need to be loved, our fear of evil and the desire to protect our homes. While belief in magic and rituals can be comforting,…

Antinous: Boy made God

Ashmolean Museum
November 15, 2018 @ 8:00 am - February 24, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

Gallery 8 Antinous was a boy-favourite of the Emperor Hadrian. He drowned in the Nile in A.D. 130, and the emperor founded a city in middle Egypt in his honour called Antinoopolis or ‘Antinous City’.

Gallery 11 2 Oct 2018 - 17 Mar 2019 Some of the finest examples of Japanese printmaking in the early nineteenth century were the exquisitely printed woodblock prints called surimono (‘printed objects’).
