About: Lisa Guzzetta

As sr. public programs specialist at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Villa, I'm fortunate to collaborate with passionate and dedicated colleagues on programs that enlighten and engage audiences about the arts and cultures of the ancient Mediterranean. Before coming to the Getty, I worked in the broadcast and music industry. The Greeks and Romans loved their fish sauce, but my favorite condiment is curry ketchup.

      Princess Leia hair is so totally 300 A.D.

      A proto-Princess Leia emerges from this 1,700-year-old terracotta lamp created in North Africa. 

      We may have Roman North Africa to thank for the famous Leia hairstyle, as this braided look appears on depictions of women in ancient artworks from this region, such as the terracotta lamp (left) at the Getty and the marble sculpture (right) at the Met.
