Random information on the term “Carved gem”:
Sir John Boardman, OBE, FBA (/ˈbɔːrdmən/; born 20 August 1927) is a classical archaeologist and art historian. He has been described as “Britain’s most distinguished historian of ancient Greek art.”
John Boardman was educated at Chigwell School (1938–1945); then Magdalene College, Cambridge, where he read Classics beginning in 1945. After completing two years’ national service in the Intelligence Corps he spent three years in Greece, from 1952 to 1955, as the Assistant Director of the British School at Athens. He married Sheila Stanford in 1952 (d. 2005), and has two children, Julia and Mark.
On his return to England in 1955, Boardman took up the post of Assistant Keeper at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, thus beginning his lifelong affiliation with it. In 1959 he was appointed Reader in Classical Archaeology in the University of Oxford, and in 1963 was appointed a Fellow of Merton College. Here he remained until his appointment as Lincoln Professor of Classical Art and Archaeology, a position previously held by John Beazley, and the concomitant Fellowship of Lincoln College in 1978. He was knighted in 1989 and retired in 1994, and is now Emeritus Professor.
Random information on the term “CAMEO”:
A cameo role or cameo appearance (/ˈkæmioʊ/; often shortened to just cameo) is a brief appearance or voice part of a well-known person in a work of the performing arts. These roles are generally small, many of them non-speaking ones, and are commonly either appearances in a work in which they hold some special significance (such as actors from an original movie appearing in its remake) or renowned people making uncredited appearances. Short appearances by celebrities, film directors, politicians, athletes or musicians are common. A crew member of the movie or show playing a minor role can be referred to as a cameo as well, such as Alfred Hitchcock’s frequently performed cameos.
Originally, in the 1920s, “cameo role” meant “a small character part that stands out from the other minor parts”. The Oxford English Dictionary connects this with the meaning “a short literary sketch or portrait”, which is based on the literal meaning of “cameo”, a miniature carving on a gemstone. More recently (late 20th century), “cameo” has come to refer to any short appearances, as a character, such as the examples below.
