  • We were on Wednesday or Thursday of last week, I do not remember exactly and the truth, is that like all that we have seen of this institution, we were not disappointed, even though our expectations were very high. It was an unforgettable experience. Art on all four sides, part, dedicated to the ancient culture of Iran, Babylon, Mesopotamia and the Assyrian Empire and part of that new culture, called "Hellenistic" My congratulations to Caixa Forum and to Ms. Alejandra Fletcher, Commissioner of the Exhibition, one of the conservatives of the British Museum and the Museum itself, for bringing to Spain those beautiful, loaded with history. Impossible to send all the photos we take, but......"for sample, a button". Come, now to Seville, to see the so-called "Pharaoh. King of Egypt" Already the title, suggests everything.
