Son of the Desert - traveller and photographer Alois Musil (1868-1944)

The exhibition will present a selection of Musil's photographs from his travels in the Middle East and a replica of Musil's map of northern Hijaz. Alois Musil was instrumental in establishing the Czechoslovak Oriental Institute, which celebrated its 100th-anniversary last year. The exhibited photographs of Musil have undergone modifications (retouching, adjusting on aluminium plates) by FAMU experts.

The exhibition was loaned to the Department of Prehistoric Archaeology of the Near East (PANE), which carried out its installation.
