The gold of the past in countries on the Silk Road on display in Geneva.
Let’s dive into the past. Why it’s from the past that comes the present and will shape the future. Even in the jewelry. An art that is like an ocean where the waters end up mixing, where colors and shapes mingle and style, like a wave, goes up the beach and then retracts. This whole poem to present an exhibition that elevates gold, rubies, turquoise, pearls and diamonds in cultural ambassadors. In Geneva, the Baur Foundation presents Bijoux d’Orients Lointains, jewels from countries along the ancient Silk Road. There are 300 precious objects coming from Yemen, Indonesia, India, Cambodia, Thailand and the Philippines. China and Japan are already in the museum. Are ancient and less ancient jewels, all rare, kept in private collections and, therefore, exposed to the public in exceptional circumstances.
As mentioned, they are jewels, and precious objects made to be worn, but at the same time have a small summary of the cultural and artistic development of the place and the era in which they were conceived. The jewels have also been used as a bargaining chip, were spoils of war, wealth testimonies destined to end up in the graves. And if you think that a jewel is only a jewel, just look at the variety of this jewelry to understand how these objects have evolved and transformed according to the taste, the goldsmith’s skill and the way of life.
