Terrible Beauty: Elephant – Human – Ivory
Ivory is fascinating – and polarizing. As early as 40,000 years ago, humans were using mammoth tusks to create musical instruments and intricate representational figures. In the more recent past, animal tusks have come to symbolize injustice and brutality. The programme for Terrible Beauty: Elephant – Human – Ivory addresses this topic with the help of a temporary exhibition, a series of discussions and artistic events, and educational activities.
