Special Exhibition

Man, God & Nature in the Ancient World: Masterpieces from The Al Thani Collection

Asian Gallery (Toyokan) Room 3  November 6, 2019 (Wed)-February 9, 2020 (Sun)

How did people of ancient civilizations conceive and depict themselves, their gods, and the natural world? The artworks they produced reflect their beliefs and world views, providing us with insights into this question.
This exhibition presents 117 masterpieces from the collection assembled by His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Abdullah Al Thani, a prince of the royal family of Qatar. Ancient civilizations across the world produced these magnificent artworks, which will be presented under the themes of “man,” “god,” and “nature.”

Izumo and Yamato: The Birth of Ancient Japan

Heiseikan Special Exhibition Galleries  January 15, 2020 (Wed)-February 26, 2020 (Wed)

The year 2020 marks 1,300 years since the compilation of Japan's oldest official history, The Chronicles of Japan (Nihon Shoki). The history contains two narratives: one of sacred lzumo inhabited by the gods of Shinto and ruled over by Ōkuninushi; and one of mortal Yamato, a place of human governance ruled over by the emperor. In partnership with their present-day counterparts, Shimane Prefecture (Izumo) and Nara Prefecture (Yamato), this special exhibition brings together rare and remarkable artifacts to explore these two foundational pillars of ancient Japan—the seat of sacred power in Izumo and the seat of political power in Yamato.
