This exhibition provides a broad historical look at the practice and history of votive giving, with around 250 objects that have been offered as acts of faith, dating from 1500 BC to the present day. The exhibition ranges from a Minoan double axe-head, thought to have been deposited at a devotional cave on Crete linked to the birth of Zeus, to a custom-built Harley-Davidson motorbike left at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in 1995 on behalf of the people of Wisconsin. Find out more about ‘Agents of Faith’ from the Bard Graduate Center’s website.
