Сохраненные святыни Москвы ушедшей
Preserved sacred objects of Moscow long-gone
Special project as part of the exhibition “Moscow through the ages”.
This display, experimental in the form of presentation, will feature works of ecclesiastical decorative and applied arts from the precious metal fund of the Tretyakov Gallery.
All in all, about 25 items will be exhibited that have never been on display, with the greatest part comprised of varied holy vessels and icons in frames made from precious metals and jewels. Most of these items originate from churches that were destroyed in the 20th century.
