But there is an entire world operating on history, heritage and intrigue.AIFACS is hosting a three-day exhibition displaying Indian coins and currency dating back to more than 2,500 years.At night, light inside pours out like tiny little stars from a salt shaker against the city’s skyline.“I imagine this metaphor of the sky, cosmic, cosmographic, with a random system like the stars itself,” Nouvel told The Associated Press.“I imagine that with not a lot of lighting, just a little bit to create a kind of rain of light.”That rain has been a long time coming in this desert country, a federation of seven sheikhdoms on the Arabian Peninsula.The museum also makes a point to put the world’s religions side by side.A man walks past the medieval "Tapestry of Daniel and Nebuchadnezzar" displayed at the Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum during a media tour on November 6, 2017, prior to the official opening of the museum on Saadiyat island in the Emirati capital on November 8.The conservative mores of Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates that’s more buttoned-up than freewheeling Dubai, can be seen in the relative absence of pieces depicting nudity.Still, artwork at the new Louvre offers a brief history of the world and its major religions, not shying away from Judaism in a country that officially does not recognize Israel.“Here at the Louvre Abu Dhabi, we’ve accomplished history,” Mohamed Khalifa al-Mubarak, the chairman of Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, said at a ceremony for journalists on Monday.
Officials in Abu Dhabi have not disclosed how much it cost to build the museum.
During construction, the project faced intense criticism over conditions faced by labourers, who faced low pay, long hours and hot conditions.
A worker was killed in an accident in 2015 while another died of “natural causes” in 2016, according to Abu Dhabi authorities.
“This museum is a lot more than just a museum.”The modernist museum, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, sits under a honeycombed dome of eight layers of Arab-style geometric shapes.
It draws the lapping waters of the Persian Gulf into its outer corridors, allowing individual beams of light that pass through the roof to strike the surface and cast dancing reflections across the white walls.
