CURRENT EXHIBITION

 

【Close-Up Exhibition】 Discovery of Mural Mosaics at the Church of Nativity, Bethlehem - the Angels Revived -

 

Bethlehem is said to be the birthplace of Jesus. The Church of Nativity in Bethlehem is mainly built on ancient architectures rebuilt in the 6th century, and one of the world’s oldest existing churches. However, it was heavily damaged and has nearly collapsed due to weathering over time and repeated conflicts. It was registered in 2012 as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the first in Palestinian territory. At the same time the risk of its collapse was of critical concern, and it was also registered on the list of World Heritage in Danger. Conservation and restoration work has been carried out by the Piacenti Restoration Center of Italy, which has extensive experience in these areas. Mural mosaics depicting angels (c.,12th century), discovered under wall plasters in 2016 attract worldwide attention. In this exhibition, the museum will introduce the significance of preservation and restoration work by Piacenti and the many discoveries made during this work, using photo panels and a video show.
