Since the 1970s, the museum has been collecting artworks created in the Russian Far East, in particular in Chukotka.
The indigenous peoples of this harsh land - the Chukchi and Eskimos - developed the art of bone carving and engraving in ancient times.
Recently, the staff of the Chukotka Heritage Museum Center from Anadyr have brought to Moscow an exhibition of works by contemporary Chukchi carvers and engravers. Among its exhibits there were a number of works based on ancient fairy tales of hunters and reindeer herders. The collection of the Museum of the East also has similar engravings and sculptures.
Where: State Museum of the East at the address , 12À, Nikitsky Boulevard, Moscow.
When: from November 13, 2020, to January 15, 2021
