New Louvre Exhibit Showcases Unknown Treasures of Thrace
Polya Lesova | Wall St International | 16th April 2015
The Odrysian kingdom formed around 500BC and comprised a loose unification of tribes in what is now Bulgaria. Its artistic achievements include intricate sculptures in precious metals and bronze – the subject of a current exhibition at the Louvre. Some pieces have only recently been discovered, making Bulgaria an area of high activity for archaeologists – and tomb robbers.
