Rescued Gods from the Palace of Tell Halaf

Over a century ago, German archaeologist Max Freiherr von Oppenheim unearthed a treasure in the Middle East. He found the remains of an ancient palace on a site in Syria known as Tell Halaf.

Six decades later, tens of thousands of fragments have been pieced back together to comprise this exhibition of salvaged sculptures, monuments, and architectural reliefs.
