Art Tales

The new installation "Art Tales" in the window of the Swarovski store in the city center is a cooperation with the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien (Museum of Fine Arts) to promote the reopening of the Kunstkammer (Art Chamber) in March. Among the highlights of the Kunstkammer are outstanding works of the goldsmith’s art, such as the famous Saliera by Benvenuto Cellini, first-rate specimens of sculpture, masterly bronze statuettes, filigree and bizarre ivory objects and virtuoso stone vessels as well as precious clocks, complicated automatons, remarkable scientific instruments, precious games and much more.
