"Feasting Through Time: A Journey into Banquets" Step into the world of banquets, where history and culture intertwine to create lavish celebrations that transcend time. From medieval tales like Sir Gawain and the Green Knight by William McLaren to vibrant scenes such as The Peasants Wedding, banquets have always been a symbol of opulence and merriment. Travel back to the late 11th century with a feast depicted in intricate detail on the Bayeux Tapestry. Witness the grandeur of an era long gone, where nobles gathered for sumptuous meals amidst tapestries woven with stories of valor and conquest. Fast forward to 1944, when even amidst war, banquets served as moments of respite. American actor James Dean shares a table with Swiss actress Ursula Andress, reminding us that joy can be found even in tumultuous times. The Crimean War brings forth another banquet scene - The Balaklava Banquet. Survivors from the Light Cavalry Brigade gather together after their heroic efforts on the battlefield. In this moment of camaraderie and remembrance, they find solace in each other's company, and are not limited to royalty or soldiers; they also serve as settings for secret societies like Freemasonry. A Masonic Banquet reveals hidden rituals intertwined with conviviality, showcasing how these gatherings fostered brotherhood among members. Poetry meets artistry in Hafez-e Shirazi's illustrated poem book depicting a banquet scene. Each stroke captures both beauty and emotion while celebrating love through verses that resonate across centuries. Enter Hogarth Election / 1Of4 (C), where politics merge seamlessly with feasting traditions during election campaigns. Amidst lively conversations over food and drink, alliances are formed or broken - proving that banquets hold power beyond mere sustenance. In Seoul's Gyeonghoeru Pavilion at Gyeongbokgung Palace, the elegance of Korean banquets unfolds.
