耶路撒冷以色列博物馆 (简体)




Archaeology  Wing  audio guide

數碼版《死海古卷》簡體 - Dead Sea Scrolls


以色列博物館創建於1965年,不但是以色列境內最大的文化匯點,更是全球數一數二的藝術和考古學博物館。館內收藏了由史前至今各式各樣的文物遺產,並設有不同展館,例如考古學館、美術館和猶太藝術生活館 。此外,館內收藏了全球最多聖經文物,在聖經和聖地考古學方面取得很大成就。感謝世界各地贊助者慷慨的捐助,以致博物館在短短45年間,已收集了近50萬件文物。

 2010年夏天,以色列博物館完成了全面的翻新工程,在20英畝的土地上興建了全新展覽廳,亦更新了入口的設備及配套。為期三年的擴展和翻新工程,在阿爾弗雷德.曼斯費爾德(Alfred Mansfeld)和朵拉蓋德(Dora Gad)的設計上加以補充,從而加深參觀者對館內展品、博物館建築及周圍環境的認識。在詹姆斯卡彭特紐約設計學院(James Carpenter Design of New York)和特拉維夫的艾弗拉特科沃爾斯基建築學會(Efrat-Kowalsky Architects of Tel Aviv)的指導下,博物館內的「撒母耳與賽迪布隆弗曼考古學館」(Samuel and Saidye Bronfman Archaeology Wing)、「埃蒙德與莉莉薩弗拉美術館」(Edmond and Lily Safra Fine Arts Wing)和「傑克、約瑟與摩頓曼德爾猶太藝術和生活館」(Jack, Joseph, and Morton Mandel Wing for Jewish Art and Life)亦進行了一系列的更新工作,使博物館在各方面都更臻完美。


死海古卷博物館(The Shrine of the Book)是以色列博物館中一座標誌性的建築。由兩位美國建築師阿芒德巴托斯(Armand Bartos)及弗雷德里克基斯勒(Frederick Kiesler)設計。館中收藏了全球最古老的聖經手稿──《死海古卷》和十分罕有的中世紀早期聖經手稿。位於死海古卷博物館旁邊的是第二聖殿時期的耶路撒冷模型。模型透過地形和建築特色,重現耶路撒冷在西元66年被羅馬人摧毀前的樣式,並為死海古卷提供具體的歷史背景。



博物館內著名的比利羅斯藝術花園由日裔美國人雕塑家野口勇(Isamu Noguchi)設計,藝術花園被喻為二十世紀中一座舉世矚目的雕塑花園。現代化的設計把藝術花園融合在古耶路撒冷山坡的東方美景中,展示了現代西方雕塑與傳統結合的美。園內收集了多位國際著名雕塑家的作品,包括一代大師傑克斯利普茲(Jacques Lipchitz)、亨利摩爾(Henry Moore)和巴勃羅畢卡索(Pablo Picasso)的作品;以及當代著名藝術家瑪格達蓮納阿巴卡諾維茲(Magdalena Abakanowicz)、馬克狄翁(Mark Dion)、詹姆斯特瑞爾(James Turrell)和米哈厄爾曼(Micha Ullman)的現場創作雕塑作品。


路得青年藝術館(The Ruth Youth Wing)是博物館內一座規模龐大且設備充足的藝術教學廳。青年館每年為超過十萬名學生提供各種不同形式的藝術課程;館內除了設有多個展覽廳、藝術工作室及教室,更附有兒童圖書館和資源回收室。為了建立一個更和諧的社區,青年館特意為阿拉伯和猶太學生舉辦一些特備課程,透過學習中的交流和互動,互相瞭解,以締造一個更融洽的社會。

洛克菲勒考古博物館  提侯故居

以色列博物館除了有一系列的設備和場所,在館外亦有兩座代表性的建築物。其中建於1938年的洛克菲勒考古博物館(Rockefeller Archaeological Museum),主要展示古以色列建築;另外,提侯故居(Ticho House)極具歷史價值,故居的花園古色古香,常用作展覽以色列年輕藝術家的作品。







美術館前身稱為比撒列藝術館(Bezalel Art Wing),這可追溯至博物館和比撒列藝術與設計學院(Bezalel School of Arts and Crafts)所建立的連繫。1928年一份有關比撒列博物館(the Bezalel Museum)主要部門的文章對館內藏品有這樣的描述:館內有最優秀的猶太藝術家和古典藝術家的繪畫和雕塑作品……一系列超過六百件的蝕刻版畫、銅版畫和素描等大師級作品,組成一個特別的空間。今天,以色列博物館的美術館館藏藝術品超過十五萬件,單是館內的版畫與素描作品已有五萬件。



美術館每年均會舉辦不同類型的藝術展覽,更不時到世界各地的場館參與展出。在2000年,展覽《睜開眼睛去夢想:維拉與阿圖羅須瓦茲的達達主義及超現實主義藝術收藏系列》(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館舉行後,先後到北美洲及拉丁美洲舉行巡迴展,更吸引了高達五十萬人次參觀。此外,2002年藝術家尹卡索尼貝爾(Yinka Shonibare)於以色列博物館舉辦了第一個藝術生涯中期回顧展《雙層穿衣》(Double Dress),之後再移師到赫爾辛基及米蘭的場館舉行。 




  • 雅克利普茲的收藏系列,包括數以千計來自非洲、大洋洲、美洲、亞洲、歐洲中世紀及古代的藝術作品。這些藝術品是利普茲在他一生中花了不少精力收集而成,現首次在藝術廳展出。
  • 古斯塔夫庫爾貝(Gustave Courbet)在畫作《Jura Landscape with Shepherd and Donkey》(ca. 1866)中,描繪了「自由國度」中著名的驢子杰羅姆(Gérôme)。
                  《Jura Landscape with Shepherd and Donkey》
  • Diego in the Studio》(1952)是二十世紀中舉足輕重的畫家及雕刻家賈克梅蒂(Alberto Giacometti)第一幅放在博物館的作品。這幅畫以弟弟為對象,畫中人物表現憂鬱。
  • 奧哈德麥羅米(Ohad Meromi)的《The Boy from South Tel Aviv》(2001)是一座大型雕塑作品。他透過雕塑一個非洲青少年,揭示難民的困苦生活與城市的大規模工程之間的不和諧,可以說該雕塑與博物館寧靜的氣氛造成強烈對比。博物館於2008年購下這座雕塑,現擺放在博物館翻新後的上層入口大堂。
《The Boy from South Tel Aviv》
  • 卡洛斯艾莫瑞斯(Carlos Amorales)的《Black Cloud》(latent studio) (2007)是一座大型的紀念藝術作品,作品佈滿一萬五千隻黑紙飛蛾。博物館於2009年收購,於當代藝術展Still / Moving中首次展出。
  • 來自十七世紀的中國工藝品,是一隻由犀牛角造成,刻有一位男孩拿着蓮花莖圖案的杯子。這只杯子是一個雕刻仔細而美麗的藝術品,對於中國來說,可算是十分重要。因為犀牛在中國已經絕種,而犀牛角是整隻犀牛中最珍貴的一部分,據說用犀牛角造成的杯子,可以中和毒素。
  • 尼日尼亞十七世紀時貝寧王國的豹頭面具,這是一種罕見的垂飾,王國的高級官員會將它掛在左邊臀部,並且放在鞘或配劍之下。面具是以黃銅鑄造,再用銅飾鈕穿過,製造過程和設計十分複雜。這個面具是以色列博物館展覽廳開幕儀式的賀禮。

埃蒙德與莉莉薩弗拉美術館的管理團隊由蘇珊蘭道(SuzannLandau)、雨拉(Yulla)與藝術館總館長雅克.利普茲(Jacques Lipchitz)所帶領。美術館的翻新工程是由特拉維夫「Studio de Lange Design」公司負責,建築師奧雲沙吉(Oren Sagiv)和哈利娜哈姆(Halina Hamou)亦有幫忙設計。













  • 全球最古老的藝術品──在戈蘭的貝雷哈特拉姆遺址(Berekhat Ram)發現的女性小雕像,有近250萬年歷史。
  • 朱迪亞沙漠洞穴內發現的429件宗教儀式物品──它們大部分是由銅造成,並且有近5500至6500年的歷史。這些文物可能是來自隱基底(En Geidi)中一個全球最古老的聖殿。
  • 畫有雄獅與母獅一同嬉戲的石頭──圖案把兩獅相處的情景栩栩如生的呈現出來,石頭來自公元前14世紀,不單是青銅器時代中極富紀念性的石雕之一,更是迦南人敘事藝術(用畫說故事)的代表作。 
  • 重建的至聖所──該至聖所本是屬於位於猶大以南邊境一處稱為阿拉德的地方內的猶太人聖殿。該聖殿因猶大王希西家曾試圖禁止百姓在耶路撒冷以外的聖殿進行公開禮拜儀式和活動而荒廢了一段時期。
  • 大衛城的碑石──該紀念碑是公元前九世紀,為紀念亞蘭王哈薛在多場戰爭中取得勝利而立的。碑石是證明大衛王朝存在的一個有力考古證據。
  • 聖殿器皿的草圖──在聖殿山附近的一間屋子里,考古學家在灰泥牆上發現刻有金燈臺、陳設餅桌子和香壇的草圖。草圖是在公元前一世紀,第二聖殿全盛時期畫的。
  • 公元第二世紀羅馬皇帝哈德良的雕像──在伯善谷第六部隊的軍營中發現,雕像用途是供人民崇拜,是現存少數的羅馬皇帝銅像之一。
  • 拜占庭式教堂──用作重建教堂的建築材料來自17個考古遺址。
  • 提比利亞的鐵匠工場內發現的超過一千件歷史可追溯至十一世紀的銅合金物品。
  • 公元前三世紀的兒童棺材──棺材用彩繪木製造,最上的一層有雕成甲蟲形狀的寶石作裝飾,中間畫了埃及天空之神努特(有保護的意思)的圖像,而最下面的圖像是國土女神。
  • 亞述王阿淑爾納西爾帕二世(Ashurnasirpal II)在首都尼姆魯德的皇宮裡剩下的牆──歷史可追溯至公元前883-859年,牆上雕有受精靈保護的野棗。
  • 狄奧尼索斯(Dionysos)的陶瓷面具──狄奧尼索斯是古希臘神話中的葡萄酒之神;陶瓷面具和狄奧尼索斯的比例是一比一,它是在公元前五世紀造成的,可能是用作崇拜希臘神。
  • 伊朗伊斯法罕的壁龕──建於十七世紀,由彩玻璃、瓷磚熔塊、幾何圖形、花卉圖案和古蘭經經文砌成。
  • 羅馬地下墓穴的金玻璃底層──建於公元四年,有很多猶太符號作裝飾,估計是用作墳墓的標記。





以色列博物館內的比利羅斯藝術花園由日裔美國人雕塑家野口勇(Isamu Noguchi)設計,融合了不同文化;雕塑家將東方及西方的元素融合在中東文化裡,跟耶路撒冷神秘的背景互相輝映。園內收集了多位國際著名雕塑家的作品,包括瑪格達蓮納阿巴卡諾維茲(Magdalena Abakanowicz)、亨利摩爾(Henry Moore)、巴勃羅畢卡索(Pablo Picasso)、詹姆斯特瑞爾(James Turrell)及米哈厄爾曼(Micha Ullman)的作品。


現在藝術花園已成為舉辦各種公共及私人活動、節日慶祝活動、嘉年華會及博物館活動的熱點。為期三天的以色列品酒節每年夏天都在這裡舉行。品酒人士在著名美國波普藝術家羅伯特印第安那(Robert Indiana)的作品《愛》(LOVE)旁邊,品嘗從多間以色列酒廠出品的葡萄酒。他們可以悠閒地坐在一旁,一邊欣賞現場演奏的爵士音樂,一邊細嘗美酒。在清風送爽的晚上,柔和的燈光照亮雕塑,這時對酒當歌,則另有一番風味。除了以色列品酒節,博物館每年八月都會在花園舉辦風箏節,讓大眾感受放風箏的樂趣。傍晚時分,在徐徐微風下,一只只風箏隨風在耶路撒冷的天空中翱翔,場面壯觀。不少以色列專業風箏好手因此慕名而來,一家大小亦可參與風箏製作活動。除此以外,藝術花園還舉辦一系列不同形式的音樂及舞蹈表演,例如以色列愛樂樂團和布茲當代舞蹈團等等,這些活動為藝術花園增添了一份活力。


               比利羅斯藝術花園               羅伯特印第安那的作品《愛》





1966年,第二聖殿時期的耶路撒冷模型正式落成。該模型是由漢斯克勞(Hans Kroch)倡議並在耶路撒冷希伯來大學的邁克爾亞唯夫容亞教授(Prof. Michael Avi-Yonah) 領導下興建而成。漢斯克勞是聖地酒店(Holyland Hotel)的業主和開發商,他倡議興建該模型是想紀念在以色列獨立戰爭中陣亡的兒子雅各布;邁克爾教授則是因為三個因素萌生重建模型的念頭,以展示耶路撒冷在一世紀的樣式。三個因素分別為古代文字,特別是羅馬猶太歷史學家弗拉菲烏斯約瑟夫(Flavius Josephus), 密西拿( the Mishnah ),塔木德經(the Talmud)和福音書 (the Gospels ) 的作品,其他在整個區域中被挖掘出來且曾隸屬羅馬帝國統治的古城和一些在耶路撒冷考古時所發現的文獻及物品。






死海古卷博物館(又名聖書博物館)建於1965年,博物館的建成是為了永久保存和展示死海古卷。館中收藏了八卷現時在世界上保存得最完整的死海古卷,以及歷史悠久的希伯來文手抄本聖經──公元十世紀的亞勒普抄本(Aleppo Codex)。

死海古卷博物館由奧地利出世的美籍建築師弗雷德里克基斯勒(Frederick Kiesler)及美國建築師阿芒德巴托斯(Armand Bartos)設計,它被視為現代建築的代表作及國際地標。

死海古卷博物館亦是基斯勒唯一永久保存的藝術品。博物館的外形設計一方面突出載着死海古卷的瓦罐形狀;另一方面也暗示了古卷的內容。2004年,透過各界組織如赫塔及保羅埃米爾基金會(Herta and Paul Amir Foundation)、洛杉磯基金會(Los Angeles Foundation)和DS及RH戈特斯曼基金會(D.S. and R.H. Gottesman Foundation)的慷慨捐獻,死海古卷博物館得以進行完整的修復,館內的環境及展示系統得以改善,為古卷及其他珍品提供最佳環境,以便永久保存。









為了紀念Joy Gottesman Ungerleider,在Dorot基金會、普羅維登斯(Providence)及羅得島(Rhode Island)的捐款下,Dorot基金會資訊及研究中心於2007年正式成立。中心為博物館參觀人士、學生和學者提供一個學習環境,讓他們進一步認識《死海古卷》,並進一步了解全球性的學術研究。中心坐落在以色列博物館,它的設備分佈在死海古卷博物館周圍。設備包括有禮堂、教室、公眾閱讀區和數碼圖書館。中心配有特別的多媒體互動程式和教學活動,讓參觀者和各地人士能更全面認識《死海古卷》、死海古卷博物館和館內其他手抄聖經。







生活的節奏:生死與婚姻 探討生命週期的轉折點,突出當中喜樂與哀哭、生與死、回憶與希望的共存。


聖經的歷史 展出一系列罕有的中世紀和文藝復興時期的希伯來文手抄本,強調聖經的歷史和當中的藝術技巧。

會堂之路:聖潔和藝術之融合 參觀四個已修復的會堂內部,會堂分別來自歐洲,亞洲和美洲;展覽另擺放了摩西五經的裝飾品,充分展示出猶太宗教建築和儀式物品的多樣化和統一性。

猶太人的曆法 安息日的神聖、宗教節日的傳統慶祝方法和新的以色列紀念節,都豐富了這個主題的收藏品和藝術品。


服裝與首飾 服裝與首飾是猶太人身分的象徵;環境,習俗和宗教規條,對於猶太人的服裝與首飾都有很大的影響。
