Photographer's Note

Sometimes it was difficult to take picture of the objects in the Abu Dhabi Louvre when they were in the glass cages and you saw reflections and other people on the other side.

I found the idea of this museum very unusual and interesting. Brought together are the objects from far away places but made in a similar time and with the same theme. So, for instance, ancient representations of women in different cultures.
This majestic statuette is probably an important divinity in Central Asian mythology. She is seen on other representations in which she appears to pacify the powerful forces of nature. Her delicate face bears an enigmatic smile. Oxus civilisation, Bactria, 2300-1700 BC.

The Bactria–Margiana Archaeological Complex (short BMAC), also known as the Oxus civilization, is the modern archaeological designation for a Bronze Age civilization of Central Asia, dated to c. 2400–1600 BC, located in present-day northern Afghanistan, eastern Turkmenistan, southern Uzbekistan and western Tajikistan, centred on the upper Amu Darya (Oxus River).
