This is the story of a renaissance. A story of priceless sculptures that date back more than 3,000 years and were very nearly lost forever. These Hittite masterpieces from the Tell Halaf site, discovered in 1911 by Max von Oppenheim who brought them back with him to Berlin, still bear the wounds of bombings during the Second World War.
Today, thanks to an enormous amount of restoration work, these works have regained their glory and are ready to once again be put on public display. This testifies to the commitment of a number of institutions (including the Louvre) to the conservation of works of art in conflict zones.
