"Capharnaüm" : la réalisatrice Nadine Labaki inspirée dans l'enfer libanais | France TV Info | Kiosque du monde : Asie | Scoop.it

Zain ne connaît pas son âge mais aurait une douzaine d’années. Il ne supporte pas que ses parents livrent à un adulte sa jeune sœur préférée de 11 ans. Quand elle meurt en fausse couche, il quitte le foyer pour faire sa vie dans la grande ville, s’occupe du bébé abandonné par une jeune réfugiée, est emprisonné, puis intente un procès à ses parents pour mauvais traitements. Le périple de Zain est prétexte à exposer le quotidien à Beyrouth, en proie au chaos et à la corruption, après une guerre interminable, toujours prête à reprendre. Nadine Labaki filme au niveau des trottoirs et des enfants comme pour un reportage, mais avec de vrais personnages construits, ce qui donne une énergie folle à son film...[VIDEO]

Unlocking the mystery of a 2,000-year-old child mummy | Archaeology News Network

Unlocking the mystery of a 2,000-year-old child mummy | Archaeology News Network | Kiosque du monde : Asie | Scoop.it

In the hushed early-morning hours Sunday, a team of anthropologists gingerly lifted a plain white box, roughly three-feet long, and slid it into the back of a staffer's SUV parked in front of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. There was nothing remarkable about the foam-core box. And that's exactly how the museum staff planned it, so as not to catch the attention of thieves.

It held a 2,000-year-old treasure: a child mummy that had come to Philadelphia by way of Egypt.

"Unfortunately, there's an antiquities market around the world. Things have value," explained James Mathieu, head of collections at Penn Museum on South Street, near 32nd Street. "You just have to be smart about not screaming out to the world, 'Hey, I'm a target.'"...

Discovery of the tomb of priest Kaires | Heritage Daily

Discovery of the tomb of priest Kaires | Heritage Daily | Kiosque du monde : Asie | Scoop.it

The tomb is located in the heart of the pyramid field of the 25th and 24th centuries BC (The reign of the 5thDynasty during the Old Kingdom) in an area normally only assigned for members of the royal family and state dignitaries.

The complex of Kaires extends over an area of over 500 m, and besides the tomb itself, contains several other rooms which served for the funerary cult and the ritual purification of the priests before they could enter the tomb.

The cult chapel represents a completely unique architectural feat of the entire 3rd millennium BC, as it was paved with basalt blocks. The use of basalt was an exclusive privilege of the kings and its presence here is one of several pieces of evidence of the exceptional status of the tomb owner. Unfortunately, only a few pieces of the cultic stela with the owner’s titles, the so-called false door, have been preserved to present times...

A twice-stolen ancient Persian artefact is in Tehran's national museum after a New York court ordered it returned to Iran.

"It now belongs to the people who made it in the first place, and who are now going to preserve it, and is part of their identity," Firouzeh Sepidnameh, director of the ancient history section of the National Museum told AFP on Tuesday.

Tadao Ando, architecte : « Je conçois des choses qui restent gravées dans l’âme des hommes pour l’éternité » | Le monde | Kiosque du monde : Asie | Scoop.it

« Tadao Ando. Le défi » propose un passionnant parcours à travers l’œuvre de l’architecte japonais Tadao Ando (né en 1941 à Osaka). Cette exposition riche et inspirée – la plus complète jamais montée en France – se tient jusqu’au 31 décembre au Centre Pompidou à Paris. Dans une scénographie signée par l’architecte lui-même, une cinquantaine de projets majeurs sont mis en scène sous forme de maquettes, d’esquisses, de croquis, mais aussi d’installations vidéo spectaculaires. Parmi eux, d’inaltérables chefs-d’œuvre comme l’Eglise de la lumière, près d’Osaka, les trois immeubles des monts Rokko, à Kobé, l’ensemble des édifices culturels qui ont métamorphosé, à la demande du mécène Tetsuhiko Fukutake, les îles abandonnées de Naoshima et Teshima, entre Osaka et Hiroshima…
