Art and technique in Yemen. The bronzes from the Museum of Baynun

Alessandra Avanzini (ed.) 2009, Bandecchi e Vivaldi, 131 pp., ISBN: 8883414411



This catalogue has been published on the occasion of the exhibition "Art and technique in Yemen. The bronzes from the Museum of Baynun", which took place at Pisa from May, 27th to June, 10th 2009.

The exhibition was an initiative which is part of the Italy-Yemen cooperation project CASIS, whose aim is to enhance the knowledge of the culture of ancient South Arabia, particularly of the inscriptions housed in the small museums of Yemen.

The artefacts of Baynun being restored at the laboratories of the University of Pisa are splendid examples of the artistic production of South Arabian bronzes, a very widespread form of art in ancient Yemen, rich in external influences but with a strong autochthonous tradition.
