Antiques News by Phoenix Ancient Art : Phoenix Ancient Art, one of the world's leading dealers in rare and exquisite antiquities, is pleased to announce it is hosting a gallery exhibition highlighting eight works of art from their recent publication "CRYSTAL 8."

Hicham Aboutaam, president of Electrum, the exclusive agent for Phoenix, commented: "We are very excited to be exhibiting these eight masterworks of ancient art. The number 8 is considered the luckiest number in China and we are hoping to bring that lucky fortune to New York with this gallery event.”

The highlight of the show is a magnificent 7,000-year-old marble "idol" from Neolithic Europe. The exquisite composition of this masterpiece is breathtaking from every angle. Sculpted from a perfect block of white marble, the eye is immediately drawn to the contrast between the lower and upper portions of the piece and the seamless flow of the sculptor's hand.

The event, which also features wine by Château Beychevelle and champagne by Dom Pérignon, will take place at Electrum's gallery at 47 East 66th St. in New York.

The exhibition opens on Oct. 26, 5–8 p.m., and continues Oct. 27-31, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.

With galleries in New York City (Electrum) and Geneva, Switzerland, Phoenix Ancient Art is one of the world's leading dealers in rare and exquisite antiquities with a focus on Greek and Roman, Near Eastern and Egyptian art. Its works of art have been acquired by world-class museums around the world, as well as by private collectors. Phoenix Ancient Art is a second-generation family business that was founded by Sleiman Aboutaam in 1968 and continues today under the leadership of his sons Hicham and Ali Aboutaam.
