Arkaim  World Behind the Looking-Glass Exhibition Opened in Kazan

The art exhibition Arkaim - World behind the Looking-Glass:  21st century BC – 21st century AC has been opened in Kazan.

      The exposition hinges on the Bronze Age art works found in the Chelyabinsk Region, and supplemented with creativity by modern artists interpreting those eternal images from today’s viewpoint.

      The exhibition includes about 200 artifacts found in the course of archeological excavations in the site of ancient town Arkaim and other settlements, making the Bronze Age monumental group Country of Towns – altogether ten of them.

      Alongside with original finds the exhibition presents reconstructions of Arkaim costumes and jewelry, as well as works by the artists pondering on the theme of Arkaim in their creativity.

      The exhibition Arkaim — World Behind the Looking-Glass was for the first time presented in the Chelyabinsk Museum of Local Lore in February this year. Later it was decided to make the exposition a travelling one, and Kazan became the first city to be ready to host it. The exhibition will run in Kazan till February 9, 2014.

      The Bronze Age settlement of Arkaim was discovered and unearthed in the south of the Chelyabinsk Region in 1987. Later other settlements and burial grounds relating to the same era were found around Arkaim. Throughout 25 years of studying Arkaim culture hundreds of thousands and even millions of artifacts telling about the life, crafts and beliefs of the ancient people have been found.

      The mysteries of anomalous ancient Arkaim draw attention of artists and writers, as well as adherents of exotic spiritual practices, such as Zoroastrianism (aka Zarathustraism), for example.
