Roman school classes School Scene Neumagen Trier
What a delicate, lovely and almost Cubist representation of a school scene from Roman times. This solid relief replica weighs nearly seven pounds.
The original school scene dates back to the 2nd century AD (between 180-185) and is preserved at the Landesmuseum in Trier, Germany.
Why not put this relief above the door to your classroom. It will remind students to be in time for their class.
A Roman school at your fingertip
On the ivory-colored school scene of Neumagen a teacher is present, surrounded by seated students. A further student enters the scene. The eleven sit on high chairs. They seem to study Papyri texts. The incoming student brings his wax tablets. How do we have to interpret the gesture of the teacher? Does he instruct the students or greet, perhaps blame the delayed one?
This horizontal relief is a magnificent piece of Roman art and shows, how important learning and education was for them.
