As an Ada Comstock Scholar in 1989 I was a Philosophy Major. I took the Art History survey course and discovered this marvelous piece of sculpture and was so captivated by it I made Art History my minor. I have gone on to obtain my Doctor of Arts, with Classics as my Major and Philosophy my Minor. My Doctoral Dissertation pertained to identifying a figure on the Parthenon Frieze by name! All because of the Cycladic Figure of a Woman.
