April 25 at 17.00 in the estate of V.P. Sukachev in the framework of the project "Special Pantry" will open the exhibition "Easter miracle." The exhibition presents more than 150 eggs, made from 70 minerals and gems from the richest private collection of Alexander Smirnov. There is no such collection in the territory from the Urals to the Far East.
The basis of the collection consists of eggs made from minerals and rocks of Siberian deposits. Siberia is unusually rich in various minerals, some of which are not found anywhere else in the world, such as charoite or blue jasper (irnim). Many minerals are very rare and have unique features. So, here you can see jade "cat’s eye" and black spinel.
It is no coincidence that the entire collection is presented in the form of eggs, whose form is considered one of the most perfect in nature, being an image of the Universe, and in the Christian tradition symbolizing the Resurrection of Christ.
The exhibition “Easter Miracle” will open on April 25 at the V.P. Sukachev (st. December Events, 112) and will work until May 26. Entrance to the opening is free. Telephone for information: 53-12-24.
The “Special Storeroom” is a long-term exhibition project of the Irkutsk Art Museum, developed jointly with the Creative Union of stone cutters and jewelers of the Baikal region, presenting works of contemporary jewelry and stone-cutting art in the museum’s halls.
