Horses on Exhibit at Phoenix Ancient Art

Geneva Branch of Phoenix Ancient Art Opening New Exhibit

Entitled “Le Cheval dans l’Antiquité” the latest exhibition at the Geneva branch of Phoenix Ancient Art is already in full swing. Having already had its opening on April 30, it will run all together for two months, closing on June 30, 2010.

Hicham Aboutaam, proprietor of Phoenix Ancient Art, helped to organize this unique celebration of the role of the horse in ancient society in a variety of artworks from antiquity. The exhibition will feature many works from many different times and cultures, all coming together to tell the special story of man’s unique relationship to the horse.

Whether they are wild or domesticated, working for us or helping us play, society’s love, fascination, dependence and attachment to the horse has been recorded since ancient times in the art that civilizations have produced throughout the ages.

Hicham Aboutaam and his brother Ali invite you to come and participate in this special exhibit which will be happening until June 30 at the Geneva branch of Phoenix Ancient Art, 6 rue Verdaine, Geneva, Switzerland.

In late October, 2009, the Old City of Geneva celebrated its [newly revived appearance] with an art show featuring 16 local amidst the regular permanent GENEVA galleries such as Bang and Olufsen, and Michael Castellino, who showed an unknown local Geneva artist by the name of Philippe Jaccard.

The center of the fair was Phoenix Ancient Art on Verdaine Street. Especially prominent in the gallery was the exhibition, “Goddesses”, lovingly exhibited by proprietors Ali and Hicham Aboutaam. A visit to Phoenix Ancient Art can be as enjoyable as a visit to an art museum, with the added bonus of no admission charge.

Some of the ancient art on view at Phoenix is even more marvelous than what is found in many museums. After all, what public institution has anything like this incredible marble statuette from the Cyclades which somehow, by some miracle, is completely intact?
