In coins can be found centuries of learning. Acclaimed coin collector Ram Kumar Tolani will join 50 local and international artists to pay tribute to the UAE with a unique display of rare coins at the ‘Year of Tolerance’ Art Exhibition by 2XL Furniture & Home Décor. The stunning 4-day show, being held at the 2XL store on Al Wasl Road in Jumeirah from 11th to 14th September 2019, will bring together over 200 spectacular art works on a single platform with a common message of ‘T.O.L.E.R.A.N.C.E.’
Ram Kumar Tolani’s superb Goodwill collection spans the history of coinage and includes a diverse selection of rare as well as commemorative pieces. Amit Yadav, Head of Marketing, 2XL Furniture & Home Décor, said, “Mr. Ram Kumar Tolani has one of the world’s finest numismatic collections comprising about eight tonnes of coins that chronicle some of the greatest events in history. We are proud to showcase the most treasured of these at the ‘Year of Tolerance’ exhibition by 2XL Furniture & Home Décor and very grateful to him for joining the show.”
Ram Kumar Tolani, stressed, “The United Arab Emirates is home to over 200 nationalities and has set an example for the world by spreading and practicing tolerance and respect for all cultures. There will always be differences between people, perceptions, opinions, personalities, religions and relationships. However, it is ‘tolerance’ and cooperation that hold the key to success. I am delighted to join in this celebration of diversity through art that propagates the message of love, peace and respect, and salutes the UAE.”
