Rare artefacts from Greece dating back more than 2,000 years are featured at the ‘Olympics-Past & Present’ exhibition opening to the public tomorrow at the Al Riwaq Doha space on the Museum of Islamic Art grounds. The Discus Thrower and the Charioteer of Delphi are only some of the famous statues that can be seen at the 4,000sqm exhibition space which showcases over 1,200 objects from various countries, most of which came from Greece, the cradle of the Olympics. Organised by QMA’s Qatar Olympic & Sports Museum (QOSM), the exhibition showcases nearly 600 original artefacts from Greece, around 400 objects from the QOSM and QMA’s permanent collection and hundreds more from other countries including France, Germany and Italy. see more : Qatar Chronicle
