Begram Glass at the Guimet, Paris

Goblet with The Rape of Europa, and the Rape of Ganymede

'African' Hunting Scene.

People seemed particularly interested in the glass shown in last year's exhibition from Afghanistan ... so here are some photos I snapped last week-end of objects from the Begram Treasure in the Guimet's permanent collection. All these objects are enamel on glass, first century, and come from the French Mission dig in the 1930s.
