The studies collected here are presented to Brunilde Sismondo Ridgway to honor an unusually inspiring and energetic teacher, a dedicated and prolific scholar, and a profoundly humane and caring human being. Bruni's passion for Greek sculpture, her constantly inquiring mind, and her bold questioning of long-accepted positions have sparked many stimulating discussions, often planting the germ of an idea to which students return in their own work.

The themes here discussed reflect many of Bruni's scholarly interests. Most are on sculptural topics, but numismatics, architecture, and Iron Age Cyprus are also represented. Discussions focus on interpretations of technique and style, consider single sculptures, groups, and whole monuments, the well known as well as the unusual.
