To learn about the world of Alexander the Great, Phoenix Ancient Art with Ali Aboutaam and Hicham Aboutaam, is proud to invite the public to its upcoming exhibition, “Alexander the Great and his World,” previewing on Thursday May 7 and exhibition starting the following day until July 31.
It was only four years ago that the Ashmolean in Oxford hosted a similar exhibition – the first time works of Alexander the Great were accessible to the public outside of Greece. Focusing on the Macedonian civilization, in the fourth century BC, an array of artifacts spanning golden crowns and finely sculpted heads were presented there. The time span was Heracles to Alexander the Great and featured King Philip II’s burial tomb as well as jewels from Macedonian queens and other such objects.
Meanwhile, now at Phoenix, visitors can learn all about Alexander the Great of ancient times such as the fact that by the tender age of 30 he had established a substantive empire, spanning all the way from Greece to the Indus River, where he would be known for saying “the sun never set.” He did indeed become quite an inspiration since Antiquity, his legend living on until today.
