About: Rebecca Edwards

I'm an education specialist in the Education Department at the J. Paul Getty Museum. I focus specifically on creating educational activities and resources for multi-generational families that come to visit us, including hands-on tours, art-making workshops, and fun activities for kids to do with their parents. I love visiting all kinds of museums, and grew up in New York City regularly traipsing the halls of both the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Natural History Museum.

      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.
