This event has ended.

The term "archaic smile" was used to depict a feature of the human sculptures in the Archaic Period of Ancient Greece. It is a smile which invokes a feeling of happiness blessed by the gods. But not limited strictly in Greek Art and on human images, we can find many "archaic smiles" on images of immortals and mortals in ancient arts of both the East and the West. The exhibition is composed of some 120 objects with smiles from ancient Near East, Egypt, Aegean region, Central Asia, South Asia, China, Korea and Japan.
