The State Archeological Museum in Warsaw has opened a new archeological exhibition entitled The Art and Religion of the Stone Age-The Cucuteni Culture and featuring objects from collections in Romania. The exhibition gives an insight into the secular and spiritual culture of prehistoric peoples inhabiting what is Romania today. Visitors to the museum get to learn about the influence the culture had on the development of neighboring cultures in that part of Europe.

The new exhibition is the first in a series of comprehensive presentations which the Archeological Museum plans to hold to show the development of Neolithic cultures and societies from around 5,000 years ago, including their daily life, beliefs and arts. The sources for the present exhibition are the invaluable collections of Romanian museums, mainly those located in the region of Moldavia.

The exhibition is accompanied by museum classes for children and young people, during which the participants recreate techniques used to make and decorate clay figurines shown at the exhibition.
