Owner description: The Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem is the only museum in the world dedicated to the history of the Ancient Near East from a biblical perspective. The core exhibition displays an extraordinary collection of ancient art and archaeology tracing the roots of monotheism from the dawn of civilization to early Christianity.The treasures on display represent the physical evidence of civilization and events described in the Bible. Traditions, rituals, religions, and cultures are revealed through ancient ivories, mosaics, jewelry, seals, terra cotta and stone sculptures. The magnificent cultures of ancient Egypt, Sumer, Assyria and Babylon come to life before you.The exhibits feature the Assyrian ivories from Nimrud (circa 800 B.C.), sarcophagus of Julia Latronilla dated from the 4th century and an impressive collection of cylinder seals and scarabs.
