Eternal Sites

Bamiyan Site

From 14 December 2016 to 09 January 2017

Until January 09, 2017, the Grand Palais, will be presenting “Eternal Sites”, an exhibition that spotlights some of the most important and stunning archaeological sites that were damaged due to war and conflicts in the Middle East and which are today at risk of destruction.


“Eternal Sites” is an opportunity to discover and explore the Bamiyan site in Afghanistan, the ancient Semitic city of Palmyra in the Syrian Desert; Dur-Sharrukin, the ancient Assyrian capital of King Sargon II, in Iraq; as well as the Crak des Chevaliers Crusader castle and the Umayyad Mosque, in Syria.

Curators
Jean-Luc Martinez, president-director of the Louvre Museum
Yannick Lintz, director of the Département des Arts de l’Islam of the Louvre Museum
Marielle Pic, director of the Département des Antiquités Orientales of the Louvre Museum

The exhibition is a joint effort between the Réunion des Musées Nationaux – Grand Palais, the Louvre Museum, and Iconem.
