Description:

This paper compares two figures in the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the 'Fertility Goddess' from Pakistan, and the 'Landsdowne Artemis' from Rome, both of which are from around the first century AD. The comparison illustrate differences in culture such as different world views, different traditions, different religious meaning, different mythologies, differences in dress, and so on, and differences in craftsmanship.

From the Paper:

"In comparing works of art from different cultures in the ancient world, two major differences can usually be noted. The first involves differences in culture, meaning different world views, different traditions, different religious meaning, different mythologies, differences in dress, and so on. The second involves differences in craftsmanship, with works contemporary in time showing very different levels of development and skill. A comparison of two works from different cultures but from about the same time period shows how these differences might be seen. A work from Pakistan from the first century AD is identified as coming specifically from Sirkap or Charsadda, in the Gandhara region of South Asia. It is a terracotta figure of the Fertility Goddess.
