At Pointe-à-Callière, Montreal Museum of Archeology and History, this exhibition will take place from June 20th to November 25th, 2012.
The exhibition will feature over 200 objects belonging to our world heritage, which bear witness to the many facets of this civilization. Of priceless historical value and remarkable significance, these items are also of great aesthetic beauty. Among the objects on display will be many treasures including jewellery, bowls, chalices, vases, sculptures, figurines, large murals, architectural elements and ornamentation, funeral urns, amphorae, and other works of art, all grouped together under various themes articulated in a museographic setting reflecting the refinement of this people.
This exhibition was five years in the making, the time required to bring together these unique pieces from the important international collections of over a dozen museums, including the Vatican Museum, Villa Giulia in Rome, the Florence Archaeological Museum, the British Museum, and the Louvre. A richly detailed exhibition that promises to be thoroughly captivating!
