Civilization Begins

I recently stumbled upon a link to Mesopotamia Online which is an immersive exploration of Mesopotamian art objects. The exhibition Mesopotamia: Civilization Begins was on view in 2021 at the Getty Villa. It was organized by the Musée du Louvre, Paris, and the J. Paul Getty Museum.

The digital exhibition is an intriguing look at some of the most amazing ancient art produced along the Middle East’s famous Fertile Crescent between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, centered in modern-day Iraq. The show goes back to the origins of urban civilization when Mesopotamia began to emerge in force around 3400 BC.
