  • [01] Byzantine exhibition in Helsinki

    A major exhibition of Byzantine Art opened in Helsinki this week at the Tennispalatsi Art Museum -- one of three Helsinki City Art Museum venues in the Finnish capital -- featuring artifacts and sacred objects related to the Greek Orthodox Church and dating back more than a thousand years. The exhibition focuses on the monastic community of Mount Athos and its way of life.

    The collection on display includes more than 200 objects from the Mount Athos monasteries themselves and from 15 museums around Europe, including ancient icons, rare manuscripts, unique sacramental vessels, magnificent textiles, wood carvings and other forms of art such as jewellery, crosses, maps, photographs and paintings, according to the museum. It also includes 1,000 year-old icons not previously exhibited abroad.

    The Athos exhibition will be the museum's major event for 2006, running from mid-August 2006 through January 2007.

    The exhibition is designed to draw from broad international sources during the year of Finlandās presidency of the European Union.

    The Helsinki City Art Museum is administered by the City of Helsinki and has three locations throughout the City - the Art Museum Tennis Palace, the Art Museum Meilahti and Kluuvi Gallery.
