Seeing Is Believing with Emory’s Parthenon Project

Emory students under the direction of Bonna Wescoat, Professor of Greek Art and Architecture, address the longstanding question of why an ornate frieze was located in a seemingly obscure position high on the outside wall of the Parthenon.

On November 10, 2012, students erected a replica of panels of the frieze at the Nashville, Tenn., Parthenon. Then they asked bystanders what they could see.
