New exhibit on ancient Yemeni art at the Sackler

"Caravan Kingdoms: Yemen and the Ancient Incense Trade" is now on display at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, in Washington, DC.

Excavations at the capitals of the ancient kingdoms of Qataban, Saba, and Himyar have yielded spectacular examples of architecture, distinctive stone funerary sculpture, elaborate inscriptions on stone, bronze, and wood, and sophisticated metalwork.
