Exhibition of painted icons on ostrich eggs – starting on 15th April at the National Museum of the Romanian Peasant


An exhibition of painted icons on ostrich egg will  be opened on Thursday starting at 5 p.m. in the Hall ‘ Tancred Banateanu’ in the National Museum of the Romanian Peasant.

‘By exhibiting the author collections, 60 icons painted on ostrich eggs made by Mariana Andone –Rotaru, in thematic association with painted icons on glass in the collections of the Peasant Museum, we will present the audience an original approach of the Eastern Egg, facilitated by the dialogue between the two types of exhibits’ says MNTR in a press release sent on Thursday.

The unique icons are inspired by the old Transylvanian sources painted on glass and reinterpreted on ostrich eggs by ‘ writing’ with wax and successive immersion in colour; in order to do it, they use heritage pieces, kept in different museum collections or private collections,coming from the following production centres: Nicula, the so-called Iernuteni ( renamed Nicula), North Transylvania; Scheii Brasov, Fagaras/Tara Oltului, Savu Moga, Matei Tamforea, Petru Tamas, Ana Deji.

The exhibition can be visited in the Hall ‘Tancred Banateanu’ until 9th May, from Tuesday to Sunday, between 10 to 6 p.m.

Mariana Andone –Rotaru is an archaeologist, curator for 15 years, PhD in History, Roman Age specialty.
