      In commemoration of its 90th anniversary, the Chosun Ilbo will sponsor a special exhibition titled "The Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece" at the National Museum of Korea from May 1 to Aug. 29.

      It is the second exhibition of objects from the British Museum, after the previous one titled "Treasures of the World's Cultures" in 2005.

      The new exhibition will feature a total of 135 items, including 26 sculptures, 25 bronzes, 20 terracotta objects, 54 decorated vases, and six gold ornaments.

      The first batch of items to be displayed arrived last week, and the remaining items will arrive on Friday. The exhibition's opening ceremony is scheduled for 4 p.m. on April 30.
