Beyond Babylon: Art, Trade, and Diplomacy in the Second Millennium B.C.
NEW YORK • Metropolitan Museum of Art • Ongoing
|Approximately 350 objects from royal palaces, temples, and tombs—as well as from a unique shipwreck—provide the visitor with an overview of artistic exchange and international connections throughout the period. From Syria, Mesopotamia, and Egypt in the south to Thrace, Anatolia, and the Caucasus in the north, and from regions as far west as mainland Greece all the way east to Iran, the great royal houses forged intense international relationships through the exchange of traded raw materials and goods as well as letters and diplomatic gifts.|
