Divine Reflections introduces the public to the beautiful and complex sacred Russian objects and icons 17th century to the early 20th century. So much of the great cultural arts of the world have been deeply influenced by our Russian cousins. The best of what was Eastern European and Asian was gathered together and stored in a country that outsiders were forbidden to enter.
Since the fall of the Soviet Union and the rediscovery of the Russian people’s roots within their own country and others, much of the Russian Culture has been able to travel great distances not only in miles and kilometers, but in respect and reverence.
Divine Reflections is a compilation of four exhibitions which together are visually stunning and of great historical importance. The sacred images on view in this exhibition are of a kind once readily found in even the humblest homes of Russia, as well as its churches and public shrines. Centuries-old artistic conventions are juxtaposed with new, Westernized formal elements and interpretations of these new forms. For Orthodox Russians, icons served as more than just religious paintings; they were seen as comforters and powerful guardians.
