Invention des agricultures, naissance des dieuxSold by Mucem Museum
DescriptionAfter two million years of living as a predator in a constraining nature, man made the decisive choice to free himself from this condition and to think differently about the relationship he had with his environment. To do this, he underwent a psychological change that led him to establish a relationship of domination and subordination with some of the plants and animals that surrounded him, as well as with his daily surroundings.
This mutation took place over several millennia and had a prerequisite: man had to establish solid and irreversible foundations by settling permanently in a given territory, by sketching out a new framework for community life, by forging a symbolic system capable of making the social body function... It is the history of this evolution through animal husbandry, water domestication and Mediterranean agriculture that is proposed here, from the Neolithic to the present day. Official catalogue of the semi-permanent exhibition "Invention of agricultures, birth of gods" in the Galerie de la Méditerranée at the MUCEM.
