ARTISTS from around the world are taking part in a sculpture symposium organised as part of celebrations marking Muharraq as Capital of Islamic Culture.
Egyptian sculptor Adam Henein is leading the sixth Bahrain International Sculpture Symposium which continues at the Bahrain National Museum until Tuesday.
Mr Henein, well known for his work in bronze, wood, clay and granite, has made valuable contributions to Egypt’s cultural landscape.
The 12 artists taking part in the symposium are from Bahrain, Egypt, Serbia, Syria, Morocco, Spain, France and Japan.
Each artist’s creation will be exhibited at Bahrain’s 44th Annual Fine Arts Exhibition which will take place in Muharraq from Wednesday until March 7.
The Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities has organised the symposium to highlight one of the oldest forms of art and promote the cultural and artistic movement in Bahrain.
