    Arrow Asian Premiere of Blockbuster Exhibition: Treasury of the World at the ACM

    TREASURY OF THE WORLD: JEWELLED ARTS OF INDIA IN THE AGE OF THE MUGHALS
    Asian Civilisations Museum, 12 February to 27 June 2010

    Immerse yourself in the opulence of the legendary Mughal empire (1526 – 1858), one of the wealthiest, most powerful dynasties the world has ever known. Treasury of the World features a dazzling array of more than 400 exquisite jewelled works of art from Mughal India, from the al-Sabah Collection in Kuwait.

    The rulers of the Mughal empire were so renowned for their lavish lifestyle, love of beauty and vast collection of precious objects, that the Mughal emperor Jahangir was once described in a letter by the English Ambassador Thomas Roe as ‘the treasury of the world’. Learn about life in the Mughal court from the leisure pursuits, food and weaponry of the emperor and his royal household. The exhibition also provides a fascinating insight to the diverse techniques in the jewelled arts used by the artisans and craftsmen during this period.

    This travelling exhibition began its journey at The British Museum in London and has since been shown in world-renowned venues such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Louvre Museum in Paris. The exhibition will make its Asian debut at the Asian Civilisations Museum in Singapore.

    This exhibition is organised by The al-Sabah Collection, National Council for Culture, Arts & Letters, Kuwait, in collaboration with the Asian Civilisations Museum.

    The last time I was at ACM, photography (w/o flash and tripod) was only permitted in the general exhibit area and strictly prohibited at the special exhibition areas.

    So pls inquire first if this particular exhibition really allows photography.
    Dun blame the camera...blame the one behind the viewfinder :bsmilie:
    My Flickr..pls leave comments!
