HOLY HELPERS. Exhibition of russian icons of XVI – beginning of XX centuries

"Holy Helpers" Exhibition (Russian icons of patrons saints of XVI - early XX century) 20.11.2009-08.12.2009. Long since a Russian man, hoping for help from above, turned in his prayers, not only directly to God, but to Christian saints as his intercessors before God, hoping for help and protection.

The icons presented on the exhibition belong to different epochs. The oldest were created in XVI-XVII centuries and reflect the last stage in the history of the ancient period of Russian icon painting.
