These Days of Maiuma

Wall at WAM: These Days of Maiuma

Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison

On view beginning March 2013


These Days of Maiuma, with its iconography of the remains of a grand feast and its themes of contemporary wealth, decadence, and disregard for the environment is intended to be a visual and conceptual counterpoint to the Worcester Hunt mosaic from 6th-century Antioch (present day Antakya in southeastern Turkey). This floor mosaic, which is installed beneath the mural, was once the setting of luxurious private dining by Antiochenes in an ancient city known for its lifestyle of sophistication, affluence, and excess.
