SYNOPSIS: In Amman, Princess Muna, the wife of King Hussein, officially opens an exhibition of antique jewellery at the Jordanian Archaeological Museum. The exhibition is part of Fine Arts Week, which was organised by the Royal Jordanian Institute of Fine Arts.
Princess Muna is chairman of the Institute. The items on display are a fine example of Jordanian art.
Much of it dates back to Roman and Byzantine times and some was found in archaeological diggings in many parts of Jordan.
The museum has a collection of coins, jewellery, pottery and brass dating back to between the Late Bronze Age and the Islamic period.
Jordan's Fine Arts Week finishes on September the 7th, although some of the displays will remain open after that.
It is designed to encourage cultural and artistic activities and to help promote tourism. Apart from the antique jewellery, there are exhibitions of old weapons and paintings, mosaics and various musical recitals. The week culminates with the Fine Arts Ball in Amman on Thursday, with all proceeds going to Jordan's National Gallery.
