Corinthium Aes

The Mystery of Black Copper

Neues Museum

The showcase exhibition is devoted to the mysterious material known as Corinthium aes – "Corinthian bronze". Knowledge of the material’s intricate manufacturing process was long believed to be lost, until a goldsmith from Nuremberg undertook to recreate it. Now, modern and ancient Egyptian artefacts enter into dialogue in the Neues Museum.
