This event is for Members only.

"Treasury of the World: Jewelled Arts of India in the Age of the Mughals," which just opened at the ACM, features a dazzling array of exquisite jewelled works of art from Mughal India, from The al-Sabah Collection in Kuwait.

Nicola Kuok, the co-curator of this exhibition, will conduct this special tour for FCA members.                                          

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.

The tour will last about 1 and a half hours and the museum is staying open late just for us.

To keep it confortable, the tour is limited to 15 people. First come, first served.
