The opening of the third part of the permanently working exhibition entitled "Trip around the world" has been held at the ethnographic museum of Leipzig in Germany, Jahon agency reported.
A 5,300- square-meter museum has been founded in 1874 and it is one of the stately and respected cultural establishments in the world in this area.
The "Eurasia – from Atlantic to Yellow Sea" exposition includes the works of applied arts from over 30 countries around the world. A special attention was paid to the history and culture of the ancient East, including Uzbekistan.
The hall of the Uzbek exposition has been designed with an assistance of the Uzbek Embassy to Federative Republic of Germany in the style of the national chaikhana (’the tea house’). The various works of the national applied arts of the Uzbek people, in particular, the ceramic, sewing, gold embroidery products, works of engraving masters and craftsmen have been presented there.
The high-profile representatives of the social, political, scientific, cultural, and business circles of Germany participated at the ceremony of opening of the Uzbek exposition.
"I thank the Uzbek side for the delivery of a number of antique displays for the museum, which had indeed enriched its collection," – Mr. K. Daimel, the Director of Ethnographic Museum, has said. Uzbekistan’s stand opens up the new opportunities for both German and the visiting guests to broadly learn the rich history, culture, traditions and modern life of the ancient cities along the very ’heart of the Great Silk Road’, Mr. Daimel has added.
He has also reminded that in January this year the Bukhara Khokimiyat (the regional administration) presented several displays to the Leipzig ethnographic museum.
"These displays remind our guests of the fairy Oriental charm and grace," – Mr. Daimel has said.
