14.03.2-23 The exhibition "Jewelry of the people of Central Asia and the Caucasus of the 18th century and the beginning of the 20th century"

March 14, 2023, at 16.00 h. The Central State Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan opens the exhibition "Jewelry of the people of Central Asia and the Caucasus of the 18th century and the beginning of the 20th century". The exhibits are provided from the private collection of the famous antiquarian and collector Prince Azat Akimbek. The collection consists of over 200 metal products — jewelry and accessories of the people of Central Asian countries.

"Jewelry of the people of Central Asia and the Caucasus of the 18th century and the beginning of the 20th century"Jewelry of the people of Central Asia was popular in the everyday life of oriental beauties and contributed to the emergence of new ideas from masters-jewelers. Ornaments of Kazakhs, Kirghizs, Turkmens, Uzbeks, Uighurs and Karakalpaks represent a huge layer in the cultural heritage of these peoples. The vivid originality of the traditional art of the people of Central Asia reflects the facets of the centuries-old history of nomadic and settled peoples, which have been interconnected by ethnic and cultural processes since ancient times. Artistic metalworking in Central Asian countries, especially precious metal products, like no other art form has brought to us the highest achievements of masters of folk art.

The high traditions of the craft that developed in the Sak era did not perish in subsequent times. Comparing the works of Sak and Sarmatian torevts and jewelers with the jewelry of Central Asian jewelers, we discover the amazing vitality of ancient traditions. Thus, the type of headdress that emerged in the Sak period in its main features has survived to the present day in the form of the Kazakh saukele. Even more impressive are the analogies between the products of the polychrome style of the Hunnic period and the jewelry of Western Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Karakalpakstan. They are characterized not only by typological proximity, but also by the similarity of ornamental decoration and production technology.

In the Turkic period, the ornament in its special steppe variant, which we can now see on the ornaments of the people of Central Asia, was widely spread.The jewelry art of the Central Asian peoples is mainly associated with the decoration of women's costumes, reflecting the peculiarities of their way of life, culture and artistic taste.

Central Asian master-jewelers managed to achieve a high technical and aesthetic level of products. They possessed a wide arsenal of technical methods of their manufacture. Casting, forging, cutting, notching, engraving, stamping, notched enamel, blackening, grain and filigree were available to them. Master jewelers worked most often alone, only in their declining years resorting to the help of a student to pass on the secrets of their skill.

The exhibition will last until March 31, 2023.


On February 14, 2023, the Central State Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan hosted the event "Kazakh Television: towards the origins of formation", dedicated to the 65th anniversary of the national television.

In his portrait caricatures, he combines the real and the fantastic, exaggerating and sharpening the features of the figure, face, costume, demeanor, achieves maximum expressiveness of the image and its recognition. Two or three strokes, an instant stroke of the hand – and before you the character of a person, his original nature and destiny. Funny, witty and sniper accurate. Caricature requires a confident hand of the draftsman, life experience, personal open communication skills and a certain civic courage," the art critic G.Povalyashko. Confirmation of this is the work of E.Nurazkhan. Thus, the humor of an artist working in this genre characterizes his uncompromising manner, wise detachment, impetuosity, a spark of cunning, the openness of the soul, revealing his second self. As a cartoonist, E.Nurazkhan has been working on the creation of a portrait humorous gallery of writers, honored artists, and political figures of the country since 1982. During the years of independence, the artist created a series of works characterizing the socio-economic and political life of the country in the humor inherent in this genre. In addition, the author, brilliantly owning not only a brush, but also a pen, proved himself as a publicist, working on the publication of a number of articles and documentary materials. The director of the museum Rashida Yerimovna Kharipova in her opening speech noted that Yerkin Nurazkhan in his works demonstrates his artistic vision of the events taking place in society, as well as political, social and cultural changes in the country. Through creativity, the author, using both the means of caricature and grotesque, expresses his civic position, in which he adheres to certain social views based on justice, openness and honesty, expressing the interests of Kazakhstanis. The exhibition "Caricature of Tarlan" demonstrates the worldview of the cartoonist and introduces visitors to a series of cartoons of public people, images of various heroes of modernity, state and socio-political figures, famous figures of science, culture and art - I. Tasmagambetov, M. Shakhanov, R.Rymbaeva, M.Beissembinov, B.Ayukhanov, K.Bekkhozhin, K.
