Phoenix Ancient Art and Hicham Aboutaam Show for the Sixth Time at the Salon Art + Design Fair

Meroitic Culture (ca. 300 B.C.-300 A.D.) or \"X-Group\" Culture (ca. 320-550 A.D.), \nTerracotta, pigment\nH: 55.6 cm (21.8 in)

NEW YORK - November 9, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Back for the sixth time, Phoenix Ancient Art and Hicham Aboutaam will bring exquisite ancient artworks to the Park Avenue Armory in a masterfully designed display at the Salon Art + Design show from Nov. 10-14, 2022.

The stand will feature the latest installation entitled "UNITED NATIONS OF FACES", which is made up of two walls of world-class ancient heads and masks from an array of different cultures and mediums.

Hicham Aboutaam, President of Electrum, the exclusive agent for Phoenix Ancient Art, Geneva, says, "I have always been attracted to ancient faces as they are a glimpse of the people and cultures of the past. Among them are Celtic, Etruscan, African, and Sabaean. This idea of mixing these faces in one display is a perfect tribute to today's age of diversity and inclusion. It's also a praise to the Salon Art and Design show and its ability to successfully mix the styles and flavors of so many different galleries under one roof."

Another highlight in the fair will be an extraordinarily rare and large Nubian vase from the famous Erlenmeyer collection and published in 1969. Painted ceramics were one of the most important avenues of artistic expression in the Meroitic period. Many of these vessels include symbolism of Egyptian inspiration.

In the center of the booth, there will be a Graeco-Roman bronze table from the first century. The style is outstanding and elaborate and certainly inspired the sculptural modeling of modern masters such as Alberto and Diego Giacometti. The legs of the table are richly adorned with the heads of wolves and there are silver and niello inlays throughout which show the taste for luxury and exotic decoration in Roman society. The table has been in New York since 1946 and published in 1948.

The Salon Art + Design will be open to the public from Nov. 11 - 14, 2022, at the Park Avenue Armory at 66th Street, New York. (stand B9)
