While I’m on holiday…… here’s something for you!
Silverstar Casino has not one, but two great exhibitions on these holidays to keep the kids entertained. The Terracotta Army and Power of Poison exhibitions.
The secrets and mysteries of ancient China are on display at Silverstar Casino, The Terracotta Army and the First Emperor of China: The Exhibition will be on from Wednesday, 15 June to Wednesday, 24 August.
The Terracotta Army and the First Emperor of China exhibition is an extraordinary voyage that showcases the Ancient China of 2,200 years ago. It is, undeniably, the most complete exhibition ever created of the Terracotta Army, the necropolis and life of the First Emperor. In an incredible staging, this exhibition brings together more than 300 life-sized reproductions of statues, chariots, weapons and objects from the daily life of the First Emperor of China, just as they were discovered in the more than 100 pits of the necropolis.
The works displayed in The TerracottaArmy and the First Emperor of China exhibition have all been reproduced by Chinese craftsmen from the original excavation site, with particular attention to detail in order to replicate the beauty and uniqueness of the originals. The reproductions are further enhanced in an authentic setting accompanied by spectacular audio-visual and lighting highlights.
In addition to hosting this epic exhibition, Silverstar Casino will also be hosting the Power of Poisonexhibition from Friday, 24 June to Wednesday, 24 August at The Globe. Guests will be taken on a guided tour to explore the fascinating history of poison in an exhibition that promises to be fun for the whole family. From the creation of Snow White’s apple, the event explores the role poison has played in changing human history, healthcare and literature.
The American Museum of Natural History, New York, is to open its award winning travelling exhibition The Power of Poison, for the first time in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban in 2016.
The American exhibition, comprising of five themes including Poison in Nature, Poison in Myth and legend, Detecting Poison, Poison by Accident and Poison for Good, explores poison’s paradoxical roles in nature, human health and history, literature, and myth from across the globe and will feature real poisonous animals and plants including South African and African species. Visitors of all ages will be able to find out which familiar tales of illness, enchantment, or death by poison – a feature of countless fairy tales, myths and legends from around the world – contain kernels of truth.
