Project description:

Exhibition “The Amber of Tutankhamun” will be presented as interplay between the latest technology and ancient artefacts. The exhibition will showcase artefacts from the Ancient Egyptian cult of the afterlife that have travelled to Riga from the National Museums of the Baltic countries and the National Museum in Warsaw. The exhibition will also present archaeological amber, emphasising the ancient trade routes to transport amber from the Baltics to other regions where they became historic cultural artefacts.

The exhibition is being organised in co-operation with the Čiurlionis National Museum of Art in Kaunas (Lithuania), Estonian History Museum, several museums in Italy, National Museum in Warsaw, British Museum, National History Museum of Latvia and University of Latvia, and in collaboration with leading researchers from the Ancient Egypt Department of the Louvre.
