The Musée du Quai Branly – Jacques Chirac is presenting “La Pierre sacrée des Māori” (the sacred stone of the Maori). It is a unique and interesting exhibition that showcases “the green gold of New Zealand”: the Jade stone.
Discovered in the southwestern part of the archipelago of New Zealand, this rare and prestigious material has for so long been cherished by the Maori people, who, in fact, regard it as a spiritual treasure and a powerful symbol of strength.
The exhibition “La Pierre sacrée des Māori” puts on view the stunning collections of jade from the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington and displays fascinating sculptures and objects carved in this precious stone. Around two hundred amazing treasures are there. So, don’t hesitate to visit it.
If you’re staying at our Hotel Saint Petersbourg Opera Paris anytime between now and October 01st, 2017, consider visiting “La Pierre sacrée des Māori”. It’s an absolute must-see!
