Detroit Institute of Art
USA United States of America
This exhibition closes at the Detroit Institute of Arts on
August 29 after a seven city US tour.
This exhibition contains over 200 gold and silver
objects gathered from the museums of Bulgaria
representing the little known cultures of ancient
Thrace. Spectacular objects from royal tombs and
hidden troves exemplify the wealth and power of a
people who left no written records but were extolled
by ancient authors from Homer to Herodotus as fierce,
war-like and especially fond of rich display.
Many of the objects come from recent excavations and
have never been seen outside Bulgaria before this
After the exhibition closes in Detroit the objects
return to Bulgaria to be dispersed to their home
museums. This is a rare opportunity to experience a
most unusual offering.
