Questions related to Iconography
I am looking for articles/studies that reccomend or have used Iconogpraphy methodology while analsying print or digital advertisements. Any suggestion would be useful. Thank you.
I investigated the color of iconography of ancient ceramics;
Normally by using XRF (and/or other chemical methods), investigators detect which chemical element(s) and its amount. If we had the samples of the pigments, we could use the method(s).
However, currently, we have examined the Munsell color number Hue Value/Chrome, such as 7.5R3/4. From this codes, can we detect which chemical element the ceramic has, and its amount? The color (pigment) of ceramic is after firing.
Thank you for your advice in advance.
I am currently working on Egyptian dynastic and Graeco-Roman rock art depictions of female pubic triangles. I analyse the material from Dakhleh Oasis in the context of other findings in Egypt and Sudan. It would be, however, helpful to discuss this rock art in a broader context of the Mediterranean basin. Hence, the question of available comparative material from that region. I would be very grateful for any references. I'm attaching an example of a pubic triangle from Dakhleh.
I am studying the architectural icons and their relationships with the built environment and users, from the perspective of the Actor-Network Theory, in addition to using established authors of Architecture such as Charles Jencks, Zaida Muxí and Josep Maria Montaner. I would like to hear from colleagues their personal opinions about what an icon is and how it arouses people's interest.
I'm currently completing an investigation on the ethology of the young falcons in order to compare it with some cultural expressions (iconography, texts) of the ancient Egyptians. I have collected some relevant, but a little bit older, references, but I would need to know if there is new data on that topic.

Hello! Can anyone please help identify the following iconography (picture provided)?
"Old man clenching his long beard into his right fist".
Context: The figure is depicted on a XII. century capital (around 1140-1170), in a pastoral church, in Avenne, modern Belgium. It seems to be linked to another capital, on which a beast - probably a lion - appears muzzled. Apart from these two historiated capitals, there is no other known decoration in this church.
Thanks in advance, I am really grateful for any help!

I'm currently researching some folk deities in Maharashtra, with specific focus on myths and rituals. I have previously worked in understanding the iconography of the Sati Asara Goddesses, however, there is very little about the myths and rituals associated. The basic information that I have is as follows:
- Sati Asara is most often a river deity/protector of villages.
- Vengeful, hence some offerings are made to appease and keep them satisfied - abate any chance of inflicting evil through non-appeasement.
- Sometimes seen as goddess of miscarriage and fertility, prayed to before harvest and before conception of child.
- As protector; prayed to with annual harvest ritual and offerings that promote vanity.
If anyone has any information, or links to information that would be useful to my research - please do let me know!
