"I found Rome a city of bricks, and left her a city of marble" the Roman historian Suetonius Tranquillus quoted Emperor Augustus. Ali Aboutaam says "this has always been a favorite quote of mine and it is Augustus' legacy to marble that sparkled Phoenix Ancient Art's splendid exhibition: Marble Mania." An exhibition filled with beautiful textures, translucency, a variety of colors and crystalline structures will be on view in New York on July 5th through August 25th. Visit Zeus, Aphrodite, Commodus, and the Roman Aristocracy in all of their glory. Of all the materials used by ancient craftsmen for their needs, marble is both universal and unique. The stone possesses qualities that captivated many sculptors. Although marbles of other colors were used, white marble became the major material represented in Greek and Roman sculpture. Visitors will be pleasantly surprised by the enigmatic marble "idols" of the Early Bronze Age, with the most known being from the Cycladic and Anatolian worlds, with a level of sophistication and appeal in their abstract and contemporary forms. Hicham Aboutaam adds, "The supremacy of marble is fabulously evidenced throughout ancient history, from the Sarcophagus of Alexander in Istanbul, to the Venus de Milos at the Louvre, to the statue of Augustus Prima Porta at the Vatican." Marble mania started with the Renaissance exploration of the Greek islands by the Venetians and the archaeological diggings of ancient Rome, Pompeii, and Herculaneum. To collect precious figural sculptures, architectural fragments, and plaques with inscriptions, the artists, architects, scholars, and noble and wealthy Grand Tourists flooded Italy, where the market of marble sculptures, and, accordingly, the schools of restoration had been established. On July 5th, Phoenix Ancient Art will demonstrate the vestiges of that great marble mania with a display of 60 marble works of art with impeccable provenance, including a large and fascinating Classical Greek relief, which was acquired on the Greek island of Corfu in 1761 by Jacopo Nani. (Jacopo and his brother Bernardo founded the Nani Museum in Venice from where this relief was de-accessioned in the 19th century.) The scene is depicting the three daughters of Zeus grouped around a celestial globe spinning the threads of human destiny. They were named Clotho (Spinner), who spun the thread of human fate, Lachesis (Allotter), who dispensed it, and Atropos (Inflexible), who cut the thread, thus determining the length of a person's life and the moment of their death. Another highlight of the show will be the Apobates Race relief, a world class Greek masterpiece with newly discovered provenance placing it in the Sir Donohue and Countess Bernardine collection in Los Angeles in the 1960s. See LA Times article on Countess Bernardine's family: "A Tycoon With a Gift for Generosity" http://articles.latimes.com/1998/sep/27/local/me-26960. Depicted on this relief is an athlete in an apobates race, which consisted of leaping on and off a quadriga (chariot of four horses) while it continued racing. The apobates races represented the main attraction of the Panathenaic games in Athens, where they were introduced by the legendary King Erichthonius and subsequently appeared in the famous frieze of the Parthenon. Marble Mania will be open to the public from July 5th – August 25th 2017 at 47 East 66th street, New York from 10am – 5:30pm, Monday through Friday.

PHOENIX ANCIENT ART TO SHOW EARLY FAIENCES A spectacular exhibition of ancient pieces of faience from the private collection of the Aboutaam family will be on view at Phoenix Ancient Art in New York (47 East 66th Street) from December 6th-30th 2011. Then traveling to BRAFA, the 57th Brussels Antiques & Fine Arts Fair, (Tour & Taxis, Bruxelles) January 21st --29th 2012. Followed by a wonderful display at Phoenix Ancient Art in Geneva (6, rue Verdaine, Geneve), Spring 2012. The collection is a personal one and was originally formed by Sleiman Aboutaam, it was continued by his sons, Ali and Hicham. Faience was used to make jewelry and amulets throughout the Nile Basin and the Near East as early as the 4th millennium B.C. The Aboutaam Collection spans the entire spectrum of the ancient world. The earliest pieces in the exhibition are Mesopotamian amulets of animals dating from the middle of the 3rd millennium B.C. (ca. 2500-2300 B.C.). The latest pieces are from Parthia (Syria) in the 2nd-3rd century A.D. Most of the 100-plus examples on view are Egyptian and date from the Middle Kingdom (2040-1650 B.C.) and the New Kingdom (c. 1570-1294 B.C.). Most of the works in the exhibition have a distinguished provenance, coming as they do from well-known established collections. Among the past owners were renowned collectors Charles Gillot, Daniel-Marie Fouquet, Baron Empain, and Charles Ratton. The includes ushabtis (funerary figurines), amulets, cups, seals, pyxides, statuettes, pots, bowls, animal-form vessels, bottles, jars, and vases. Fans of "William," the well-loved Egyptian faïence hippopotamus at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, will be pleased to see that there are three other examples of blue-green hippopotami in the show that are among the stars of the exhibition. Two date from the Middle Kingdom (dynasty 11-13) One is from the Late Period (6th-4th century B.C.), which is known as the Persian Period because it was truly international with similar works appearing from Egypt to Iran and the Levant. The hippopotamus, which looks so benign and lovable, was, in fact, a force of nature to be reckoned with, both in this life and in the next. Other highlights include an Egyptian New Kingdom light green figure of a seated antelope; an Egyptian pectoral with a military scene representing Ramses II, dating from the 13th century B.C.; an Egyptian Late Period amulet of Taweret, a fertility deity, associated in this representation with women in labor; a Greek aryballos (small globular vase) in the form of a hedgehog from the mid-6th century B.C.; a Late Period Egyptian dish decorated with a pair of lions; and an Egyptian amphora from the Hellenistic period decorated with a gold leaf wreath.
