Study Group Autumn 2019

The theme chosen for the Autumn Study Group is “The Artistry of Folk Tales, Legends and Myths”.

During previous years of the Study Group which incidentally has been in existence since the 1990s, we have been privileged to learn more about many of the historic and artistic wonders of our world and particularly those in Asia. We have seen the extraordinary shapes, designs, effigies, carvings and paintings which embellish many architectural sites and are sometimes repeated into the present day. We have been intrigued by the stories behind these eye catching decorations. The temple figures, carvings in wood and stone, the wall paintings, the monuments and other decorations which grace so many iconic sites all tell a tale and it is these explanations of the stories behind them that we shall be seeking to elucidate.

Subject to arrangements to be confirmed, we will be meeting at Conet in Queen’s Road Central on Tuesdays from 11 am to 1 pm starting in late September/early October. Details will be announced in due course.

We are a very uncritical and friendly group meeting in a relaxed environment. We all enjoy doing some research and passing on what we have learnt to fellow members about a topic which has interested each of us. If you would like to join us please contact Patrick Moss at [email protected] who will be happy to give you any further information about the Study Group.
