Exhibition on Persepolis opens in Brussels' Royal Museum of Art and History

An exhibition on the "Reconstruction of the Monuments of Persepolis" opens to the public at the Royal Museum of Art and History of Brussels Friday, IRNA reported.

"In this exhibition we try to show to the people how the landscape and monuments originally were in Persepolis," Dr. Alexander Tourovets, scientific counselor at the museum and scholar of Iranian archaeology, told IRNA.

"We try to show in a very scientific way how the structures stood in Persepolis," he said.

The exhibition will be on display for three months and then transferred to another big gallery in Brussels.

"We hope after that the exhibition will be shown in Cambridge (UK) and then at Persepolis itself," said Dr. Tourovets who travels often to Iran and can also speak some Persian.

The exhibition is organized by the Royal Museum of Art and History in cooperation with the well-known Belgian publishing company Casterman which last week published a book on Persepolis.

"Many, many schools, and in Belgium we have many lovers of this kind of historical exhibition, will come to see this exhibition," said Dr. Touroverts.

He said a scientific team of six scholars prepared the exhibition which consists of models and paintings of structures of Persepolis.

A large number of scholars, university professors, men of arts and letter and media representatives attended the opening ceremony Thursday night.

Meanwhile, an exhibition of Art in the Islamic World will open at the same museum in December.
