INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION PROJECT

The Procession of the Golden Man through the world museums

THE EXHIBITION

«THE GREAT STEPPE: HISTORY AND CULTURE»

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The exhibition "The Procession of the Golden Man through the world museums" will present the culture and art of the Eurasian nomads to a foreign audience. In 1969, Kazakh archaeologists led by K.A. Akishev, one of the founders of Kazakhstan's archaeology, during the excavations of the Issyk burial mound, discovered to the world the unique culture of the Saka inhabiting Zhetysu in the IV-III centuries BC.

Exhibits

In the burial mound were found skilful handmade items: the parade armor of the buried warrior, the remnants of an iron sword and a dagger. Thanks to these subjects, researchers managed to create the appearance of the Saka warrior, as a result of the painstaking work. There construction coincided with the description of the Saka's clothing, which was preserved in ancient sources about the Saka-Tigrahauda.

Among all the finds of the Issyk mound a special place is occupied by a silver bowl with an inscription made with runic letter. It is the oldest literary monument found on the territory of Kazakhstan. The samples of jewelry art presented at the exhibition are just a small part of gold items - adornments and masterpieces of nameless masters of the past, reflecting the originality of the heritage of the steppe culture of Eurasia.
