Hierarki och genus på minoisk-mykenska guldringar: En undersökning genom bildens uppbyggnad

Jackson, Robin LU (2017) AKSK04 20162
Classical archaeology and ancient history
Abstract
This essay examines twenty-two minoan-mycenaean gold signet rings depicting group motifs. It strives for an unbiased approach to the interpretation of the motifs by studying the placement, negative space and direction of the figures in search of possible signs of hierarchy and gender expression. In doing so, traditional theories of women being the most important figures are challenged. The essay concludes that the theory of a matriarchy based on images may not be unequivocally supported, as both women and men seem equally significant in the iconography.
