【Summer Special Exhibition】 Enchanted by Oil Lamps: The Nakayama Collection and Beyond

29 July - 10 September 2017 【Summer Special Exhibition】 Enchanted by Oil Lamps: The Nakayama Collection and Beyond

 Our lives are reflected in the light every day and night. Illuminated life in modern times has its origins in dimly-lit oil lamps, with which the ancients long tried to control fire and create light. Ancient oil lamps were produced throughout the millennia across the globe, and were first of all an indispensable source of light, but also served as a guiding light for the dead.
 In this special exhibition we shed light on a wide variety of oil lamps, from the ancient Near East, Greek and Roman Mediterranean worlds, to pre-modern and modern Asia, Europe, and Japan. Enjoyable participatory events ensure that everybody can feel the light of ancient wisdom!
