A writer for the South China Morning Post recently gave “Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures” and extremely favorable review. The exhibition, which is currently on view at the Melbourne Museum, explores the cultural history and beauty of Afghanistan.
Sue Green writes of the exhibition,
After an eight-minute introductory National Geographic film telling the amazing story of the treasures, visitors are funnelled [sic] into an area setting the scene: not only is there an illustrated timeline and a map showing the network of routes linking cities, trading posts and watering holes that comprised the Silk Road, there are spectacular National Geographic photographs of Afghanistan as you have never seen it.
Blue Bear Films produced the award-winning films and animations seen in the exhibition.
“Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures” is on view at the Melbourne Museum until July 28, 2013. When the exhibit leaves Melbourne in July, it will continue to venues in Brisbane, Sydney, and Perth.
