Salamis 480 BC expo München

Beitrag von Cryns » Do 13. Jan 2022, 14:39

Last november my wife and I drove all the way to Bavaria's capital Munich to participate in a new exhibition of the Staatliche Antikensammlungen Und Glyptothek, located in one of the two museumbuildings am Königsplatz.

This museum was founded by König Ludwig I von Bayern in the 1830's and is displaying an impressive collection of ancient Greek, Etruscan and Roman statues and artifacts.

The subject of todays special exhibition is Salamis 480 BC. Its about the famous sea battle between Greek and Persian galley fleets.
Because this beautifull trireme model in the Deutsches Museum in München was not available for loaning to the Antike am Königsplatz museum at the last moment...

...the organisors contacted me for loaning my wooden Dusek trireme:

The museum invited us and both the museum director and one of his curators specialized in ancient Greek art gave us a private tour in both the Glyptothek (statue collection) and the artifactsbuilding, as well as some hidden area's that are never accessible for the public. At the day we arrived there was a crew building up the exhibition in four halls of the museum. I found the glassbox for my shipmodel still empty:

For me the eye catcher was a stylized diorama of the sea battle as can be seen here on the right:

But this was still under construction when we were there.
The exhibition is open for the public until march 13th. 2022

Part of the exhibition consists of historic artifacts from the museums own collection. Like the exekiasbowl which is a very famous object because of the accurate painting of a late 6th century bireme galley:

Or this gravestone from the 4th century BC displaying a marine soldier at the prow of a galley:

Greek helmet and greaves from around 490 BC:

And a trophaion displaying the armour of a conquered enemy from around 400 BC:

Included in the exhibition is the reconstructionmodel of the Persian Satrapal Karacamirli palace which is recently excavated by Florian S. Knauss (the museumdirector himself) and his team, in todays Azerbaijan:

One of my favorites of the museum has nothing to do with the Salamis battle but the more with painting miniatures and small sculptures: This is a 3th century Tanagra statue from Attica still covered in its original paint. :shock: :o These sculptures were mass produced and I value the historic relevance of these colors a lot:

The exhibition is open for the public until march 13th. 2022

Eine sehr interessante Ausstellung! Ich finde es sehr schön, dass immer wieder unsere 1/72er Exponate in den verschiedensten Museen bzw. Ausstellungen gefragt sind. Deine historisch genau recherchierten Modelle passen da auch genau hin.
Liebe Grüße, Wolle

Chapeau Cryns!
I think such an exibition has the appropiate format for your work.
And a great occasion to have a museum tour with this real, original marbels. To be honest many of them I only know as the plaster casts in the University of Heidelberg.

Greetings
Frank

Heidelberg, is that where you studied archaeology Frankzett?
In addition to the Glyptothek, the museum in München has an additional building with 19th and 20th century plaster copies.
