J. In Memoriam

In Memoriam

In memoriam of Dr. Ingeborg Huld-Zetsche – her favourite artifact had been this unique vessel from Mainz, that depicts a relief and moulded onto it is a bird (raven) and a snake, as typical symbols of mithraism.

The mysterious bowl/globe-like objects in mithraism, that must have symbolized stars and planets, raised questions to her, like the stellar aspect of mithraism overall.

Without her support as the deputy director of the Archäologisches Museum Frankfurt at the time, the exhibition project in the Kreuzgang of the Karmeliterkloster hadn’t been possible. We thank her for her friendly support and feel deep reverence to her work and her kind personality.
