Palmyra. Pearl of the Syrian Desert - 18/01/2020, Copenhagen (Denmark)
In a time when globalisation, migration and cultural conflict permeate the agenda in many places in the modern world, the ancient city of Palmyra has again attracted attention with its fascinating history as one of the world’s first multicultural societies.
Palmyra was an oasis in the Syrian desert that had its golden age during the Roman period. Outside Syria, The Glyptotek holds the world’s largest collection of the city’s funerary portraits, currently on display in the critically acclaimed special exhibition The Road to Palmyra.
