Following a tradition of the Russian pre-revolutionary philanthropists, members of the Karisalov family did not only gather a remarkably comprehensive and outstanding collection of the Russian bone carvings and studied the art of bone carvers - but took care of its fate as well by bequeathing it to the museum. The works of masters of 18th-19th centuries skillfully combine the traditions of bone carving with new artistic trends as well as reflect the historical events of the time.

The exhibition will run until the 4th of April 2021 at the Anteroom of the Armoury Chamber.
