  MHC Art Museum-s99 future
Faustina the Elder was the wife of one Roman emperor-Antoninus Pius-and aunt and mother-in-law of another-Marcus Aurelius.
Although Faustina the Elder (so named to distinguish her from her daughter Faustina the Younger) had a enduring reputation as a woman of intelligence and virtue, she has yet to be the subject of extensive study.
Included in the exhibition will be images relating to Faustina's death and her metamorphosis into a goddess, such as prints, drawings, coins, early photographs, and watercolors that represent the empress's funeral cart and pyre, and her transcendence into the heavens on the wings of an eagle.
