Würzburg, Martin Von Wagner Museum
21th October 2016 – 19th February 2017
The CRAST, in collaboration with the Julius Maximilian University of Würzburg, contributed to the design and set up of the photographic exhibition on the Assyrian stone reliefs from the Sennacherib Palace at Nineveh. The pictures displayed as photographic panels, which had already been exhibited in Turin, Baghdad and Venice, were taken by Angelo Rubino in 2002, on the occasion of two survey and study campaigns at Niniveh conducted by the CRAST in collaboration with the MiBACT. The exhibition opened on the 21st of October 2016 and was hosted by the Martin von Wagner Museum in the South Wing of the picturesque Residenz in Würzburg. Through the display of these photos, the CRAST brings to life the project of making these Neo-Assyrian art masterpieces accessible to the public while emphasizing the necessity to protect and preserve the archaeological heritage of the Near East, recently subjected to extensive destructions.
