The ORIGINS exhibition is a 4.5 billion-year journey that spans the birth of Earth and its formation to the emergence and explosion of life in all its forms. Erupting volcanoes spill torrents of lava, auroras dance in the polar night, icebergs melt on black strands, while erosion whittles away at mountains and rock. Vegetation conquers the mineral world, while ever more evolved insects, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals spread to all our planet’s natural environments. At times unbridled, at others tranquil, always stirring and eloquent, Nature is a boundless source of inspiration.
ORIGINS celebrates biodiversity, its fragility, and consequently, that of humankind. This journey through time, space and diversity is meant to strengthen our bond with Nature and inspire respect for Earth, the home of all our origins.
