The Queen of Sheba is a legendary figure, first referred to in the Old Testament as bringing great riches to the court of Solomon. Later cultures dwelt on various perceived attributes, but the truth of the matter is that the Queen remained an anonymous figure of legend associated with the land of Saba, one of the great early kingdoms of Arabia (Yemen). This exhibition catalogue charts the story of the history and culture of this region, from the Queen of Sheba in art and legend, to the historical evidence.Über den Autor:
