The influence of precious metals and objects of great value were already a determining factor in the ancient civilizations of the Middle East. The exhibition "Luxury: from the Assyrians to Alexander the Great" explores the production, variety and value of many objects and materials such as ivory, jewels, reliefs, glass, gold and metals from 900 to 300 BC. It is a collection that makes us reflect in the importance of luxury in the relationships of commerce and power in ancient civilizations through examining the objects the elite acquired to provide them with pleasure and a sense of well-being.
