Man, God & Nature in the Ancient World: Masterpieces from The Al Thani Collection will feature 117 works of art created by a rich diversity of cultures spanning over three thousand years. United by the themes of man, god and nature, it explores the way in which people of the ancient world addressed and interpreted the forces around them.
