Tribute to the Bardo Museum by swo8 Blues Jazz

Carthage was founded by the Phoenicians around the 9th century B.C. It’s located in part of the city of Tunis, Tunisia. It was ideally positions for commerce being on the shore of the Mediterranean. Over time it went through a series of successions – from Phoenico-Punic, Roman, Paleochristian and Arab. Today you can still see the remnants of the buildings. There are even old bath tubs found in the ruins of their homes. They often used ceramic tiles to cover their walls and floors. The Bardo, in Tunis, is a museum that houses a lot of these ceramic displays. Unfortunately the Bardo suffered a terrorist attack in March 2015. Several people were killed and some of the exhibits were damaged. These photos were taken one year before the attack. 1:31 min.

  1. Than you for sharing, Leslie! Centuries in difference ;-), but the music meets the art. The demolition of the artificial pieces is horrible. But as i remember from the Latin studies, Cato always said: Carthaginem esse delendam!”. Michael
