News Center -TDO- The exhibition "Ginto: A Golden Legacy of Our Filipino Ancestors", hosted by Philippines Ambassador to Ankara Maria Elena Algabre, opened at Ankara CerModern.

The exhibition was attended by Ambassador Algabre, as well as Minister of Commerce Dr. Mehmet Muş, ambassadors and many guests attended.

After the speeches of Ambassador Algabre and Minister Muş, the exhibition was opened.

Spanish explorers who set foot on the island in the 16th century recorded their observations as "When you sift the soil on the island, there are pieces of gold the size of eggs and walnuts". Because gold was abundant, the ancient Filipinos specialized in goldwork and produced marvelous works of art that were magnificent manifestations of advanced expertise not only in metallurgy, physics, chemistry, and other sciences, but also in the fields of political, cultural, economic, religious, and artistic expression.

In this exhibition, ancient decorations from 700 to 1200 years ago, made by Filipino ancestors, are presented to its visitors. These ornaments are part of the Old Spanish Era Gold Collection of Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP).

The exhibition will be open to visitors from 20 June to 4 July 2022
