"Gods and Heroes, The Ancient Lives of the Greeks, Romans & Etruscans
2000-07-08 until 2000-09-03
Art Gallery of South Australia
Gods and heroes, myths and legends: for the Ancient Greeks, Romans and Etruscans, life and art was utterly intertwined. The finest and most beautiful sculpture, mosaics, glass, jewellery and ceramic objects from the cradle of civilisation create one of the most breathtaking exhibitions to visit Adelaide – and in perfect time to celebrate the Olympic Games.
The exhibition tour in Australia has been
organised by the Western Australian
Museum and is from the National Museum
of Antiquities at Leiden, The Netherlands
and is accompanied by a fully illustrated all
colour catalogue (see below for details).
The National Museum of Antiquities has
one of the finest collections of antiquities
anywhere and after the outstanding
success of Life and Death under the
Pharaohs, also from Leiden, the Gallery
is delighted to present this spectacular
and beautiful exhibition.
