Lacey, I was rather appalled at how Evans and Schliemann both approached ‘preserving’ these examples from previously unknown cultures. With the “Snake Goddess”, I could have understood replacing the missing pieces how he did if there had been other examples of similar art that would have confirmed this as a strong possibility. However, to just replace it however he needed to confirm this piece as a goddess figure is just infuriating. The same goes for “The Mask of Agamemnon”. It makes it even sadder to think these pieces will carry the title that does not fit their origins, no matter what is discovered about their true history.
