Old Believers Art Exhibited in St. Petersburg

Exhibition of the Old Believers art has been open in Benois Wing of the Russian Museum, Petersburg.
      Old Believers have long become the symbol of unbending tenacity and unshakable belief. When upholding their views and rights, they preserved lots of samples of Old Russian culture for Russian history.
      Along with invariable icons, the exposition presents woodcut and copper-founding crosses, folding icons, wall-mounted drawn sheets and folk handicrafts, such as distaffs, komboschoinions, i.e. Old Believers rosaries, stamps for book printing, etc.
      A meaningful highlight of the current exposition is a rare icon depicting a historic moment: the archpriest Avvakum, leader of the Old Believers, is incarcerated and Boyarynya Morozova is blessing him.
