The Art of falconry from East to West - temporary exhibition at Museu do Oriente - The 28th of
I decided to head to Museu do Oriente on Sunday morning despite not knowing exactly what was on in there, as far as temporary exhibitions are concerned. I was soon pleased with the fact that for the price of one ticket I would be able to see three exhibitions, the art of falconry being the first one.
It comprised a wide variety of objects and artistic pieces therewith related, some of which I was told had not been exhibited before. I felt it was particularly well organised in as much as it covered several periods of history, different approaches and displayed artistic artefacts,
which I found to be of great value.
The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
