Afghanistan's Gold at Met Show

Ancient Afghanistan -located at the crossroads of major trade routes, where it attracted invading armies and nomadic migrations- was home to some of the most complex, rich, and original civilizations on the continent of Asia. Opening at The Metropolitan Museum of Art this summer, the traveling exhibition Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures from the National Museum, Kabul, celebrates the country's unique role, as both the recipient of diverse cultural elements and the creator of distinctive styles of art from the Bronze Age into the Kushan period. Don’t miss it in New York until September 20, 2009.
