The National Archaeological Institute with Museum at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences organizes an exhibition dedicated to the female beauty through the ages. It presents artefacts related to the female costume and beauty care – jewels, hair accessories and toiletries from the Early Iron Age (11 th – 6 th c. BC) to the Late Middle Ages. Images of women on ceramic and metal vessels, as well as on frescoes form Thracian tombs and medieval churches, present the female portrait with the characteristic costume and accessories.

Co-organizers of the exhibition are 15 museums of history and archaeology in the country which participate with finds from their depositories.

The exhibition will be officially opened on 12 May (Thursday) at 6 pm in the Temporary Exhibitions Hall of the National Archaeological Museum and will run until 25 September 2016.
