耶路撒冷以色列博物館 (繁體)



Archaeology Wing Audio Guide in Chinese

数码版《死海古卷》 Dead Sea Scrolls



2010年夏天,以色列博物馆完成了全面的翻新工程,在20英亩的土地上兴建了全新展览厅,亦更新了入口的设备及配套。为期三年的扩展和翻新工程,在阿尔弗雷德.曼斯费尔德(Alfred Mansfeld)和朵拉盖德(Dora Gad)的设计上加以补充,从而加深参观者对馆内展品、博物馆建筑及周围环境的认识。在詹姆斯卡彭特纽约设计学院(James Carpenter Design of New York)和特拉维夫的艾弗拉特科沃尔斯基建筑学会(Efrat-Kowalsky Architects of Tel Aviv)的指导下,博物馆内的「撒母耳与赛迪布隆弗曼考古学馆」(Samuel and Saidye Bronfman Archaeology Wing)、「埃蒙德与莉莉萨弗拉美术馆」(Edmond and Lily Safra Fine Arts Wing)和「杰克、约瑟与摩顿曼德尔犹太艺术和生活馆」(Jack, Joseph, and Morton Mandel Wing for Jewish Art and Life)亦进行了一系列的更新工作,使博物馆在各方面都更臻完美。


死海古卷博物馆(The Shrine of the Book)是以色列博物馆中一座标志性的建筑。由两位美国建筑师阿芒德巴托斯(Armand Bartos)及弗雷德里克基思勒(Frederick Kiesler)设计。馆中收藏了全球最古老的圣经手稿──《死海古卷》和十分罕有的中世纪早期圣经手稿。位于死海古卷博物馆旁边的是第二圣殿时期的耶路撒冷模型。模型透过地形和建筑特色,重现耶路撒冷在公元66年被罗马人摧毁前的样式,并为《死海古卷》死海古卷提供具体的历史背景。



博物馆内著名的比利罗斯艺术花园由日裔美国人雕塑家野口勇(Isamu Noguchi)设计,艺术花园被喻为二十世纪中一座举世瞩目的雕塑花园。现代化的设计把艺术花园融合在古耶路撒冷山坡的东方美景中,展示了现代西方雕塑与传统结合的美。园内收集了多位国际著名雕塑家的作品,包括一代大师杰克斯利普兹(Jacques Lipchitz)、亨利摩尔(Henry Moore)和巴勃罗毕卡索(Pablo Picasso)的作品;以及当代着名艺术家玛格达莲纳阿巴卡诺维兹(Magdalena Abakanowicz)、马克狄翁(Mark Dion)、詹姆斯特瑞尔(James Turrell)和米哈厄尔曼(Micha Ullman)的现场创作雕塑作品


路得青年艺术教育馆(The Ruth Youth Wing)是博物馆内一座规模庞大且设备充足的艺术教学厅。青年馆每年为超过十万名学生提供各种不同形式的艺术课程;馆内除了设有多个展览厅、艺术工作室及教室,更附有儿童图书馆和资源回收室。为了建立一个更和谐的社区,青年馆特意为阿拉伯和犹太学生举办一些特备课程,透过学习中的交流和互动,互相了解,以缔造一个更融洽的社会。

洛克菲勒考古博物馆  提侯故居 

以色列博物馆除了有一系列的设备和场所,在馆外亦有两座代表性的建筑物。其中建于1938年的洛克菲勒考古博物馆(Rockefeller Archaeological Museum),主要展示古以色列的建筑;另外,提侯故居(Ticho House)极具历史价值,故居的花园古色古香,常用作展览以色列年轻艺术家的作品。

点击浏览博  物馆各展馆:




美术馆前身称为比撒列艺术馆(Bezalel Art Wing),这可追溯至博物馆和比撒列艺术与设计学院(Bezalel School of Arts and Crafts)所建立的连系。1928年一份有关比撒列博物馆(the Bezalel Museum)主要部门的文章对馆内藏品有这样的描述:馆内有最优秀的犹太艺术家和古典艺术家的绘画和雕塑作品……一系列超过六百件的蚀刻版画、铜版画和素描等大师级作品,组成一个特别的空间。今天,以色列博物馆的美术馆馆藏艺术品超过十五万件,单是馆内的版画与素描作品已有五万件。



美术馆每年均会举办不同类型的艺术展览,更不时到世界各地的场馆参与展出。在2000年,展览《睁开眼睛去梦想:维拉与阿图罗须瓦兹的达达主义及超现实主义艺术收藏系列》(Dreaming with Open Eyes: The Vera and Arturo Schwarz Collection of Dada and Surrealist Art)在耶路撒冷以色列博物馆举行后,先后到北美洲及拉丁美洲举行巡回展,更吸引了高达五十万人次参观。此外,2002年艺术家尹卡索尼贝尔(Yinka Shonibare)于以色列博物馆举办了第一个艺术生涯中期回顾展《双层穿衣》(Double Dress),之后再移师到赫尔辛基及米兰的场馆举行。




  • 雅克利普兹的收藏系列,包括数以千计来自非洲、大洋洲、美洲、亚洲、欧洲中世纪及古代的艺术作品。这些艺术品是利普兹在他一生中花了不少精力收集而成,现首次在艺术厅展出。
  • 古斯塔夫库尔贝(Gustave Courbet)在画作《Jura Landscape with Shepherd and Donkey》(ca. 1866)中,描绘了“自由国度”中著名的驴子杰罗姆(Gérôme)。
《Jura Landscape with Shepherd and Donkey》
  • 《Diego in the Studio》(1952)是二十世纪中举足轻重的画家及雕刻家贾克梅蒂(Alberto Giacometti)第一幅放在博物馆的作品。这幅画以弟弟为对象,画中人物表现忧郁。
  • 奥哈德麦罗米(Ohad Meromi)的《The Boy from South Tel Aviv》(2001)是一座大型雕塑作品。他透过雕塑一个非洲青少年,揭示难民的困苦生活与城市的大规模工程之间的不和谐,可以说该雕塑与博物馆宁静的气氛造成强烈对比。博物馆於2008年购下这座雕塑,现摆放在博物馆翻新后的上层入口大堂。
《The Boy from South Tel Aviv》
  • 卡洛斯艾莫瑞斯(Carlos Amorales)的《Black Cloud》(latent studio) (2007)是一座大型的纪念艺术作品,作品布满一万五千只黑纸飞蛾。博物馆於2009年收购,於当代艺术展Still / Moving中首次展出。
  • 来自十七世纪的中国工艺品,是一只由犀牛角造成,刻有一位男孩拿着莲花茎图案的杯子。这只杯子是一个雕刻仔细而美丽的艺术品,对于中国来说,可算是十分重要。因为犀牛在中国已经绝种,而犀牛角是整只犀牛中最珍贵的一部分,据说用犀牛角造成的杯子,可以中和毒素。
  • 尼日尼亚十七世纪时贝宁王国的豹头面具,这是一种罕见的垂饰,王国的高级官员会将它挂在左边臀部,并且放在鞘或配剑之下。面具是以黄铜铸造,再用铜饰钮穿过,制造过程和设计十分复杂。这个面具是以色列博物馆展览厅开幕仪式的贺礼。

埃蒙德与莉萨弗拉美术馆的管理团队由苏珊兰道(Mira Lapidot)、雨拉( Yulla)与艺术馆总馆长雅克利普兹(Jacques Lipchitz)所带领。美术馆的翻新工程是由特拉维夫「Studio de Lange Design」公司负责,建筑师奥云沙吉(Oren Sagiv)和哈利娜哈姆(Halina Hamou)亦有帮忙设计。






我们诚邀你浏览博物馆的网址,一尝在网上欣赏文物的乐趣。希望有一天你能亲身莅临博物馆, 跟我们一起探讨不同文物。 




  • 全球最古老的艺术品──在戈兰的贝雷哈特拉姆遗址(Berekhat Ram)发现的女性小雕像,有近250万年历史。
  • 朱迪亚沙漠洞穴内发现的429件宗教仪式物品──它们大部分是由铜造成,并且有近5500至6500年的历史。这些文物可能是来自隐基底(En Geidi)中一个全球最古老的圣殿。
  • 画有雄狮与母狮一同嬉戏的石头──图案把两狮相处的情景栩栩如生的呈现出来,石头来自公元前14世纪,不单是青铜器时代中极富纪念性的石雕之一,更是迦南人叙事艺术(用画说故事)的代表作。
  • 重建的至圣所──该至圣所本是属于位于犹大以南边境一处称为阿拉德的地方内的犹太人圣殿。该圣殿因犹大王希西家曾试图禁止百姓在耶路撒冷以外的圣殿进行公开礼拜仪式和活动而荒废了一段时期。
  • 大卫城的碑石──该纪念碑是公元前九世纪,为纪念亚兰王哈薛在多场战争中取得胜利而立的。碑石是证明大卫王朝存在的一个有力考古证据。
  • 圣殿器皿的草图──在圣殿山附近的一间屋子里,考古学家在灰泥墙上发现刻有金灯台、陈设饼桌子和香坛的草图。草图是在公元前一世纪,第二圣殿全盛时期画的。
  • 公元第二世纪罗马皇帝哈德良的雕像──在伯善谷第六部队的军营中发现,雕像用途是供人民崇拜,是现存少数的罗马皇帝铜像之一。
  • 拜占庭式教堂──用作重建教堂的建筑材料来自17个考古遗址。
  • 提比利亚的铁匠工场内发现的超过一千件历史可追溯至十一世纪的铜合金物品。
  • 公元前三世纪的儿童棺材──棺材用彩绘木制造,最上的一层有雕成甲虫形状的宝石作装饰,中间画了埃及天空之神努特(有保护的意思)的图像,而最下面的图像是国土女神。
  • 亚述王阿淑尔纳西尔帕二世(Ashurnasirpal II)在首都尼姆鲁德的皇宫里剩下的墙──历史可追溯至公元前883-859年,墙上雕有受精灵保护的野枣。
  • 狄奥尼索斯(Dionysos)的陶瓷面具──狄奥尼索斯是古希腊神话中的葡萄酒之神;陶瓷面具和狄奥尼索斯的比例是一比一,它是在公元前五世纪造成的,可能是用作崇拜希腊神。
  • 伊朗伊斯法罕的壁龛──建于十七世纪,由彩玻璃、瓷砖熔块、几何图形、花卉图案和古兰经经文砌成。
  • 罗马地下墓穴的金玻璃底层──建于公元四年,有很多犹太符号作装饰,估计是用作坟墓的标记。




以色列博物馆内的比利罗斯艺术花园由日裔美国人雕塑家野口勇(Isamu Noguchi)设计,融合了不同文化;雕塑家将东方及西方的元素融合在中东文化里,跟耶路撒冷神秘的背景互相辉映。园内收集了多位国际著名雕塑家的作品,包括玛格达莲纳阿巴卡诺维兹(Magdalena Abakanowicz)、亨利摩尔(Henry Moore)、巴勃罗毕加索(Pablo Picasso)、詹姆斯特瑞尔(James Turrell)及米哈厄尔曼(Micha Ullman)的作品。


现在艺术花园已成为举办各种公共及私人活动、节日庆祝活动、嘉年华会及博物馆活动的热点。为期三天的以色列品酒节每年夏天都在这里举行。品酒人士在著名美国波普艺术家罗伯特印第安纳(Robert Indiana)的作品《爱》(LOVE)旁边,品尝从多间以色列酒厂出品的葡萄酒。他们可以悠闲地坐在一旁,一边欣赏现场演奏的爵士音乐,一边细尝美酒。在清风送爽的晚上,柔和的灯光照亮雕塑,这时对酒当歌,则另有一番风味。除了以色列品酒节,博物馆每年八月都会在花园举办风筝节,让大众感受放风筝的乐趣。傍晚时分,在徐徐微风下,一只只风筝随风在耶路撒冷的天空中翱翔,场面壮观。不少以色列专业风筝好手因此慕名而来,一家大小亦可参与风筝制作活动。除此以外,艺术花园还举办一系列不同形式的音乐及舞蹈表演,例如以色列爱乐乐团和布兹当代舞蹈团等等,这些活动为艺术花园增添了一份活力。

比利罗斯艺术花园                 罗伯特印第安纳的作品《爱》 







1966年,第二圣殿时期的耶路撒冷模型正式落成。该模型是由汉斯克劳(Hans Kroch)倡议并在耶路撒冷希伯来大学的迈克尔亚唯夫容亚教授(Prof. Michael Avi-Yonah) 领导下兴建而成。汉斯克劳是圣地酒店(Holyland Hotel)的业主和开发商,他倡议兴建该模型是想纪念在以色列独立战争中阵亡的儿子雅各布;迈克尔教授则是因为三个因素萌生重建模型的念头,以展示耶路撒冷在一世纪的样式。三个因素分别为古代文字,特别是罗马犹太历史学家弗拉菲乌斯约瑟夫(Flavius Josephus), 密西拿( the Mishnah ),塔木德经(the Talmud)和福音书 (the Gospels ) 的作品,其他在整个区域中被挖掘出来且曾隶属罗马帝国统治的古城和一些在耶路撒冷考古时所发现的文献及物品。









生活的节奏:生死与婚姻 探讨生命周期的转折点,突出当中喜乐与哀哭、生与死、回忆与希望的共存。 


圣经的历史 展出一系列罕有的中世纪和文艺复兴时期的希伯来文手抄本,强调圣经的历史和当中的艺术技巧。 

会堂之路:圣洁和艺术之融合 参观四个已修复的会堂内部,会堂分别来自欧洲,亚洲和美洲;展览另摆放了摩西五经的装饰品,充分展示出犹太宗教建筑和仪式物品的多样化和统一性。 

犹太人的历法 安息日的神圣、宗教节日的传统庆祝方法和新的以色列纪念节,都丰富了这个主题的收藏品和艺术品。 


服装与首饰 服装与首饰是犹太人身分的象征;环境,习俗和宗教规条,对于犹太人的服装与首饰都有很大的影响。
