East Meets West: Jewels of the Maharajas from the Al Thani Collection
This exhibition explores the cultural and material exchanges between India and Europe through jewelry and precious objects ranging from the seventeenth century to the present. It features more than 150 pieces made in India or Europe associated with Mughal emperors, maharajas, and their courts. These objects include jewelry to be worn on ceremonial occasions, weapons such as swords and daggers, and precious works of art for display or use.
This will also be a last chance to see "Islam and the Classical Heritage", manuscripts drawn from the National Library of Israel's special collection. This will not be on our tour, but is free with museum admission.
