Ancient Mysteries


UVA art professor John Dobbins and #UVAWrestling head coach Steve Garland and assistant coach Trent Paulson have collaborated in a unique way. Their objective: to try and solve a mystery surrounding an ancient Greek vase residing in the Louvre museum in Paris. For Dobbins, the mystery was years in the making. While in graduate school, and for the better part of a 40-year teaching career at UVA, Dobbins had wondered about a mythological wrestling scene painted by the renowned vase painter Euphronios that dated back to 510 BCE.
