For the first time, archaeologists worldwide come together in search of sculpted funerary portraits from Palmyra disseminated around the world to recount the story of the ancient city in a way that has never been done before: through the faces of the city’s inhabitants. Exploring the inner secrets of these sculptures reveals the exceptional nature of this legendary city and its multicultural identity. A key to understanding the fascination the city has exerted for centuries lies in the fact that Palmyra has always aroused curiosity and has always been the source of countless powerful stories and images.
