Hot on the heels of the highly successful Tutankamen exhibition, comes the Wonders of Ancient Mesopotamia exhibition, displaying the majesty of the three great hubs of ancient civilisation: Sumer, Assyria and Babylon.
The Melbourne Museum promise to bring us another fascinating collection of archaeological treasures – direct from The British Museum.
From the Museum Website:
"Mesopotamia played an extraordinary role in the development of human civilisation. The art and literature, reliefs and ritual objects recovered from the region provide a remarkable record of how great knowledge has been passed from the ancient to the modern world." said Dr. Greene.
Ancient Mesopotamia shaped much of what we take for granted in day to day life with its inventive creations. There will be over 170 artefacts exhibited - which are on loan from the Middle East collection of The British Museum.
Be amazed by huge gold jewellery, enormous carved stone reliefs and the images of life in Mesopotamia.
This exhibition allows us to interact and relate to history with treasures and multimedia. You will be able to explore and learn about "palaces and royal power, religious beliefs and rituals, burial practices and royal tombs, and the myths and legends that surround ancient Mesopotamia" (Melbourne Museum).
The Wonders of Ancient Mesopotamia is welcomed by the Melbourne Museum and will open on 4th of May 2012.
