Guided tour at The Museum of Mediterranean and Near Eastern Antiquities

Date: October 21, 2015
Location: Medelhavsmuseet, Fredsgatan 2
Language: Swedish
Exhibition: Like A Prayer

A guided tour at The Museum of Mediterranean and Near Eastern Antiquities especially for members of III Art Club. Museum educator Fredrik Helander will show us selected highlights from the exhibitions at The Museum of Mediterranean and Near Eastern Antiquities. In the vast collections of the Swedish Cyprus expedition’s excavations in the 1920s are hundreds of terracotta figurines from the cult place Ajia Irini. As well as the Etruscan votive offerings which now can be seen at Magasin III in the exhibition Like A Prayer, they can be interpreted as gifts to a god or goddess. We will also see the world famous limestone head from the Vouni Palace. In the recently refashioned Egypt exhibition we meet, among other things, the mummy of the Egyptian priest Neswaiu, and a unique 4400 years old sculpture of the pharaoh Sahure, temporarily borrowed from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Please note that the program will be held in Swedish.

Invitation and more information about the evening’s program will be communicated via the III Art Club newsletter that is sent to members once a month.
