Ankara National Museum - 4

Ankara is the capital of Turkey. There, we saw these amazing, beautiful pieces. These earrings below are from Ancient Troy (6th century B.C) and were smuggled from their excavation to Germany to Russia to eventually University of Pennsylvania, who returned them to Turkey, where they were originally found. There is another pair of these earrings in a museum of Russia. Even today, these are just as fashionable. Below are other gold or luxury objects.


Bronze Cauldrons, Assyrian art. 8th century B.C.
