Forgotten Kingdoms

The exhibition "Forgotten Kingdoms" (May 2 to August 12, 2019) in the rooms of the Hall Napoleon of the Louvre Museum offers us to rediscover the Hittite Empire, a fascinating civilization. A rival of ancient Egypt, the Hittite Empire dominated Anatolia, in Asia Minor, until 1200 BC. The 180 works in the exhibition, which come from Berlin, London, Copenhagen, Jerusalem and Chicago, bear witness to this power. To move works such as The Seal of Tarkumuwa from the Walters Museum or the Lions from the Pergamonmuseum in Berlin weighing more than 4.5 tons, no less than 10 LP Art installers worked for three weeks to install the works.
