The face gazes into the distance, yet the eyes appear to follow you. Why did the mosaic known as the “Gypsy Girl” with the mixture of sorrow and joy in its look become such an important symbol of the ancient city of Zeugma?
Of course, we’re not revealing the answer to that question here…but from mid-March onwards you can visit the Gypsy Girl in a new exhibition space in Gaziantep, close to the Turkish-Syrian border. You’ll be accompanied by a sophisticated multi-media guide. Thanks to the software from tonwelt
, the museum can modify the contents of the guide as it sees fit – at no additional cost.
The audio guide has been produced in Turkish, English, Arabic, Spanish, French and German to serve the large number of tourists who come to see the mosaics. It is accompanied by pictures of the rescue excavation sites and the restoration work. Another peek behind the scenes is provided by film footage from the restorers’ workshops.
For everyone who would like to inform themselves about the Museum and its mosaics, an iPhone app will be available shortly after the official opening – free of charge from tonwelt
. With an abundance of additional information and tips it invites users to pay a visit to the world’s largest mosaic museum in Gaziantep.
