Inside The Museum

The focal point is the building’s cavernous great hall. Fresco-like paintings of Russian mythological and religious icons line the walls and ceiling. The saturated oil colors used to create the tiger and bull totems, birds, druids, and mermaids achieve a stained-glass effect. It is Modern Renaissance that adopted the eclecticism of our life and creatively transformed it into its ideal counterpart, where mythological creatures peacefully converse with flowers, and fairy-tale landscapes harmonically incorporate complicated geometrical ornaments. It may be the key to many secrets of existence.
