Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- The plans of the World Society for the Study, Preservation and Popularization of the Cultural Heritage of Uzbekistan are to create a book-album dedicated to the objects of folk applied art of Uzbekistan stored in the collections of museums in Great Britain.
The work on the project has just begun: a group of authors has defined the concept of the future edition and started collecting visual material.
Now the content of the three sections of the future book has been determined. Among them:
This collection of works of art (Glasgow, Scotland) contains objects of Islamic culture donated by businessman and philanthropist William Burrell to the museum. An important part of the Islamic collection is embroidery and textiles from Uzbekistan.
Oxford Ashmolean Museum is the oldest museum in the world, opening its doors to the public in 1683. The collection of the Eshmola Museum contains numerous objects of art representing the cultural heritage of Uzbekistan.
British museum. The heritage of Uzbekistan in the British Museum is presented in three sections. The first is dedicated to the famous jade bowl of Mirzo Ulugbek, created in the first half of the 15th century by a master from Samarkand. The second section will bring together a collection of magnificent miniatures created on the territory of present-day Uzbekistan. The third section will tell you about embroidery, felt carpets and other unique textiles of the 19th century, which are now in the collection of the British Museum.
Collaboration with Whitworth Gallery (Manchester) and the Victoria and Albert Museum is under negotiation.
In the collection of the Whitworth Gallery, a significant place is taken by the collection of samples of textiles, since the textile industry is the leading one in the city. The Whitworth Gallery has one of the largest collections of Uzbek textiles.
The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) houses the world’s largest collection of arts and crafts, design and sculpture. Here is an interesting collection of textiles and ceramic tiles related to the cultural heritage of our country.
