Some 11,000 years ago, seafaring people from the Near East landed their boats on the island of Cyprus. The easternmost isle in the Mediterranean, Cyprus has long been a place where influences from East and West meet.
The antiquities presented in this exhibition represent objects that range from the earliest villages to masterpieces of medieval religious art, presenting the American public for the first time an overview of the unique culture of Cyprus.
Curator, Sophocles Hadjisavvas, Department of Antiquities, Cyprus, speaks about the exhibit.
