About a year ago the Russian audience was given an opportunity to witness more than 160 unique Armenian showpieces in the State Historical Museum of Russia.
The exhibits had been transferred to the museum from the History Museum of Armenia, Etchmiadzin Cathedral Museum, and the Mesrop Mashtots Institute of Ancient Manuscripts (Matenadaran).
Introduced exhibits have been dated from ancient times to more modern days. Every piece has its own history. Unfortunately, the article on manhunter.ru whence the images have been taken contains somewhat inaccurate historical data.
The article is written in Russian, but visit it you wish or just look around on this site to find some information about Armenia.
Nevertheless, enjoy the showpieces!
