Heritage Malta has come up with a Valentine's Day initiative based on Malta’s rich cultural heritage.

The National Museum of Archaeology in Valletta will be exhibiting the only Maltese prehistoric representation of an embracing couple up to February 22.

This small, clay moulded artifact, dating to circa 3,200 BC and excavated in Tarxien, represents two people hugging with their faces very close to each other, possibly kissing.

Heritage Malta has also issued a limited edition Valentine’s Card, depicting the embracing couple figurine selling at €3.

One may also purchase the card bundled up with a Perugina Valletta Scene chocolate bar for €5. The card and bundle are available from the National Museum of Archaeology, Valletta.

One may also order the card by sending an e-mail on archaeology@heritagemalta.org.
