Event I am looking forward to go!

Was told about this event happening at the Asian Civilisations Museum

Treasury of the World: Jewelled Arts of India in the Age of the Mughals
12 Feb 2010 - 27 Jun 2010
@ Special Exhibitions Gallery, ACM Empress Place

Immerse yourself in the opulence of the legendary Mughal empire(1526 – 1858), one of the wealthiest, most powerful dynasties the world has ever known. Treasury of the World features a dazzling array of 402 exquisite jewelled works of art from Mughal India, from The al-Sabah Collection in Kuwait.
The rulers of the Mughal empire were so renowned for their lavish lifestyle, love of beauty and vast collection of precious objects, that the Mughal emperor Jahangir was once described in a letter by the English Ambassador Thomas Roe as ‘the treasury of the world’. Visit this exhibition to learn more about the diverse techniques in the jewelled arts used by the artisans and craftsmen during the Mughal period.

This travelling exhibition began its journey at The British Museum in London and has since been shown in world-renowned venues such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Louvre Museum in Paris. The exhibition will make its Asian debut at the Asian Civilisations Museum in Singapore.
This exhibition is organised by The al-Sabah Collection, National Council for Culture, Arts & Letters, Kuwait, in collaboration with the Asian Civilisations Museum.

Admission charges: $8 (adult) / $4 (concession) / $20 (family package) Includes admission to ACM permanent galleries.
