Faces of Power Roman Gold Coins from the Victor Adda Collection, The Israel Museum Jerusalem.
This exhibition Curated by Dr. Haim Gitler and Yaniv Schauer portrayed an astounding collection of 75 gold coins never before displayed to the public. The coins bearing the portraits of Roman Emperors and their wives offer a rare glimpse into the world of the rulers of the Roman Empire, as well as revealing the great artistic skill to reflect a person's character, mostly as means of portraits on coinage over a period of 350 years. The slogans on the coins - the majority of which include words relating to victory, security, and peace - display how little propaganda has changes over thousands of years.
In order to allow the visitors to carefully examine every spectacular detail of this unique collection we have created a 3D simulator. This enabled the viewer a 360-degree enlarged image of each impressed coin revealing its subtleties and textures.
