Join art historian Dawn Devine aka Davina as she takes us on a journey tracing the history of Salomé and her mythical “Dance of the Seven Veils.”
From her origins in the 1st century CE to today’s modern interpretations, this presentation will include the many ways that Salomé has appeared
throughout the last 2000 years of Western history.

Davina will explore: 

  • Her imagery, from Early Christian depictions, through the high Renaissance, the Victorian era through to the 1950s.
  • Her evolution in painting and sculpture, and later, photography and film.
  • Special focus on the development of the Salomé costume in the late 19th century, which forms the foundation for today’s modern belly dance bedlah set.

Registration includes a printable timeline to follow along in this historical survey and suggested reading list for further research.
