The Nicholson collection at the University of Sydney’s Chau Chak Wing Museum holds three artefacts donated by PGH in 1984, including this vase dating from around 500 BC. All three sat on the mantlepiece in her home in Athens. This one, at 20cm high, seems very large as well as being extremely fragile for something that was smuggled in her clothing on board the flight from Athens to Sydney in 1975, but that’s what she alleged she did. The Museum claims to hold the largest collection of ancient antiquities in the southern hemisphere: see the other artefacts donated by PGH at https://www.sydney.edu.au/museum/discover-our-collections/nicholson-collection.html
Today is the thirtieth anniversary of PGH’s death. How did she want to be remembered? When Joyce McGrath painted her portrait in 1989 she chose to wear one of the capes that had been handmade for her in Greece, they used as background two Greek masks that she had hanging in the house and in her hand was a toy owl, representing Athena (or Minerva) goddess of wisdom. Thus the portrait tied her not just to her years of living in Greece but also to ancient Greece and its mythology. Almost certainly she was also making a statement about her own exceptionality.
