AAB 2015 - Exhibition Fight Pray Love - Anton Bartholomeew Collection of Mogul and Sikh arms, armors and paintings
The exhibition Fight – Pray – Love focused on Moghul and Sikh arms and armors as well as the role of weaponry in acts of workship and rituals; its sacred role in the quotidian world and in religious ceremonies and the techniques; the design and decoration symbolism intervening in its manufacture, and on the wider role this material and metaphysical phenomenon has had to play.
The exhibition was held in an exceptional “Art Nouveau” building from the Belgian architect Victor Horta during Asian Art in Brussels Fair. Linked with the exhibition, a lecture : North indian weapons and warriors, was given by the respected scholar Dr. Robert Elgood.
