History Museum of Armenia, Yerevan

History Museum of Armenia, Yerevan Beholding ancient artifacts plays a big role in establishing a spiritual connection with a nation’s history. The sensation of the closeness of the hands of ancient craftsmen who made the preserved artifacts is simply invaluable.

Every time I manage to pay a visit to the Geghard Monastery, I make sure to climb its ancient staircase, the center of which features a deep cavity that has been forming for nearly 2,000 years, to experience that sensation of closeness. The same sensation comes when observing ancient artifacts. Unfortunately, a mere photo and even a high-quality film cannot transfer that feeling.
