In June 1979 a major exhibition (that later travelled to different locations) was inaugurated at the Palais des Beau-Arts in Brussels. Hergé was not aware of the full catalogue but the organisers of the exhibition explained that the purpose was to compare the legendary objects Tintin comes across and collects throughout his adventures with the real-life objects that inspired them.
On the exhibition poster, Hergé depicted his characters visiting an imaginary exhibition that would drive Tintin fans wild.” From Chronologie d’une œuvre – volume 7, by Philippe Goddin.
