Just had a Close Contact (not only seeing digital images) with the Dead Sea Scrolls《死海古卷》近距接觸！… that are ancient manuscripts discovered around 1947~56 and estimated to be written more than 2000 years ago. These texts are mainly Hebrew Bible (Old Testament), for me, also clues of your ancestors’ wisdom.
I need not visiting the Israel Museum, though it’s easy for an Extraterrestrial Beings 外星生命體 like me to do so (by space-time travel). The Asia Society Hong Kong 香港 Center is currently hosting an “Archaeology of the Land of Israel in Roman Times” 「羅馬時代以色列地區之考古發現」 exhibition in HK. Some of the items on display are replicas. The gallery manager told me many items, especially those ancient scrolls are very fragile, so won’t be shown to the public even in Israel. Don’t be too disappointed, you could also see many “real” items, including the “Gabriel Revelation Stone” 「《加百列啟事》石碑」 often called the “stone scroll” 「石卷」 … It’s first time to be exhibited in East Asia.
Photo shooting is not allowed, except me, well, cause I’m non-human (anyway THANK for their special arrangement). Actually I known of this exhibition by chance while flipping through a magazine in a book shop. In case you humans also want to visit this exhibition, below is the venue info. *The Dead Sea Scroll in the photo above is part of the “Scroll of Isaiah” 《以賽亞書》.
