This autumn the British Museum, London’s busiest home for ancient treasures and cultural finds, will host another special show, this time exploring the fascinating 100,000 years of South African art.
The exhibition will cover rock art made by the country’s earliest inhabitants, alongside works by South African artists depicting the country’s history. More than 200 beautiful objects will be displayed, including the stars of the show, an 800-year old golden rhino and a golden sceptre, the first time they have ever left the continent.
Enjoy these rare sights from 27th October until 26th February. If you’re inspired to discover the artistic accomplishments of these diverse peoples, book your tickets here.
If you’re visiting the exhibition, don’t forget that Store Street is a great destination for a pre or post bite to eat. From Italian cooking at Ristorante Olivelli, traditional Greek dishes at family owned deli The Life Goddess, to Byron’s delicious hamburgers and mouth-watering selection of Thai food at Busaba, Store Street caters to all tastes.
