Worlds within Worlds: An Extraordinary and Eclectic Collection


Peter and Leonora Petrou’s unorthodox taste has helped them amass an extraordinary collection of incredibly diverse pieces across four decades. In this video, marvel at works of art, paintings and sculptures from antiquity to the present day and from Europe, across the globe to the Rarotonga and the East. Gaze upon incredibly unique pieces ranging from a 19th century Quing Dynasty shield, a portrait of Prodigy singer Keith Flint to a four billion year old piece of meteorite. These exotic, provocative and curious items have been painstakingly collected and will be available as part of the ‘Worlds within Worlds: Works from the Collection of Peter Petrou’ auction (10-21 September).
