Magic for all: Illuminated crossbows scope at London’s Medieval Museum
London’s Royal Academy of Arts is preparing to unveil an illuminated crossbow sight, a unique, modern way to watch medieval art from inside the museum.
The new scope, which will be unveiled on April 21, will be installed in the museum’s galleries in an effort to give visitors a glimpse inside the gallery, and will feature illuminated crossbows in the background, the Academy said in a statement.
The crossbows, which have been a staple of European art for centuries, were designed by Johannes Georges, who also designed the original illuminated crossbraces, the academy said.
The museum, which opened in 1865, has been open to the public since 1871.
The scope is part of a broader project called the Royal Academy’s Illuminated Crossbow Scope Program.
The program is aimed at showcasing artworks from around the world, and the new scope will be the first time it will be used in the library, the statement said.
It is unclear whether the crossbow will be included in the public display or not.
The academy will also be providing a public lecture on the project on April 24.
