Ex­hi­bi­tion of trea­sures from Afghanistan ex­tended

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Arts -

THE WA Mu­seum has ex­tended the sea­son of ex­hi­bi­tion Afghanistan: Hid­den Trea­sures from the Na­tional Mu­seum, Kabul un­til Jan­uary 18.

The ex­hi­bi­tion showcases trea­sures once thought to be lost to the world and con­tains more than 200 rare and beau­ti­ful ob­jects dat­ing back to the Bronze Age, from a place once at the cross­roads of the world’s great civil­i­sa­tions.

WA Mu­seum chief ex­ec­u­tive Alec Coles said he was pleased more West Aus­tralians would get the chance to see the ex­hi­bi­tion over the Christ­mas and New Year hol­i­day pe­riod.

“I would go as far to say that this is one of the most ex­tra­or­di­nary exhibitions that we have ever shown at the WA Mu­seum,” he said.
