Ancient Arts and Artifacts from Palestine and Other Lands Shown in New York

Jars, vessels, coins, gold figurines and hundreds of other rare arts and artifacts from ancient Palestine and other Biblical areas in the Middle East form an exhibition on three floors of the America-Israel Culture House here. The show, in honor of Israel’s 20th anniversary, focusses on the early Canaanite period (3,200 to 2,200 B.C.E.) and continues through to the Second Century period of Bar Kochba’s revolt against the Romans. Designer of the exhibition was Paul Lampl, architect and art historian.
