In this exhibition the main theme is people's relationship with nature and how the environment moulds people's lives. This exhibition displays the close bonds between people and the environment that they live in and utilise, showing the close bond the people of the Mesopotamian Marshes in Iraq have with their surroundings and the way they work with the marsh to make a living and to create a life from the marsh and its resources.
