    From the Warren Cup to Dürer's Rhinoceros, the Lewis Chessmen to the Aztec turquoise serpent and the Gayer-Anderson Cat, the iconic objects of the British Museum are here presented in an exciting and accessible new way.

    Introduced by Neil MacGregor, Director of the British Museum, the huge range and scope of the collections provide a stunning overview of mankinds artistic production around the world.
