Exhibition: 113 Ors d’Asie

From June 21st till September 18th, 2017, the musée Guimet presents the exhibition "113 Ors d’Asie". For the occasion, the MNAAG took out some of its collections and is introducing other more recent ones, in order to offer to the public 113 masterpieces to admire. Very present in the Buddhist and the tantric cultures, as well as in the Hinduism and the Jainism, this noble metal played a major role in many Asian countries. For this retrospective, the musée Guimet selected for lovers of rare objects Indian maharajah adornments, golden coins of the kouchane Afghanistan and Japanese sculptures in golden powder, to name a few pieces presented on the spot.
