The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Gallery 351- Ethiopia



The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Gallery 351- Ethiopia from 09/01/12 to 04/30/14

Works of Ethiopian artist Gedewon from the Pigozzi collection are on display in the Met's Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas permanent collection. The works can be found in Gallery 351 until September 2013. "This gallery presents an array of forms of expression that developed following the adoption of Christianity as a state religion by the emperor of Aksum, Ezana, in the fourth century." Along with his religious studies, Gedewon was secretly initiated into talismanic art. The purpose of his art was to heal body and soul through ancient patterns, imagery, and invocation.
