About the Lecture

Professor Nicole Coolidge Rousmaniere, the Research Director of the Sainsbury Institute will give a lecture alongside Professor Kobayashi Tatsuo and Professor Tsuji Nobuo at the world famous Miho Museum. The lectures will be in association with the exhibition ‘Dogū, a Cosmos: Ancient Clay Figurines’, which runs from 1 September to 9 December 2012. It features many important examples of dogū from all over Japan, including National Treasure-designated Jōmon Venus and the earliest dogū found in Shiga Prefecture. The lectures will be followed by a discussion session which will provide the audience with the opportunity to converse further about the exhibition.
