Special Exhibition: Welcome to Ancient Paradise

Sat 5 October 2013 - Sun 8 December 2013

What is your idea of paradise?
Some may think that it is a beautiful tropical land with plenty of trees and flowers, while others have an image of a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Still others imagine a rich banquet with delicious food and drink. Although the image of “paradise” differs from one person to another, there have been common features such as desire for happiness, peace, and prosperity since ancient times.

This exhibition is divided into five parts: Ancient Egypt, Ancient West Asia, Ancient Mediterranean Area, Ancient South Asia, and Ancient East Asia. It includes a wide array of images related to paradise. We hope that visitors will enjoy the exhibition and compare their ideas of paradise with those of the ancient world.
