This sumptuous display of the Kabul Museum’s collections, fully re-constructed here after 20 years of conflict, brings to light four major discoveries. Fulol (2500-2000 BC) ; Ai Khanoum, (3rd Cent. BC) ; Tillia-Tepe, (1st Cent. BC). The display of ancient Indian ivories, Chinese lacquered bowls, glassware, bronzes and even of plaster emblemata all demonstrate the luxuriousness of courtly life during the Kushan Empire (1st – 3rd Cents.). This exhibition highlights the beauty and originality of a heritage that lies between the Indian and Scythian worlds, China and the Mediterranean…
