Kazakh exhibition with the Golden Warrior opens in Museum of Macedonia

Saturday, 13 July 2019, 14:33:03

The exhibition “The Great Steppe: History and Culture” was opened July 11, 2019, at the National Archaeological Museum of the Republic of Northern Macedonia, in the city of Skopje under the project “The Golden Man Procession in World Museums,” the press service of the National Museum of Kazakhstan reports.

The exhibition will feature the symbol of Kazakhstan – the Golden Warrior (Altyn Adam). The aim of the exhibition is to familiarize the foreign audience with the rich historical and cultural heritage of Kazakhstan.

In the National Archaeological Museum of Northern Macedonia, the reconstruction of the Golden Warrior is presented in clothes embroidered with gold plaques, in a special conical headdress decorated with golden plates in the form of golden arrows, snow leopards, argali, horses and birds. A collection of archaeological finds from the early Iron Age (V - IV centuries BC), accompanying the burial of this notable Saki young warrior (according to archaeologists his age is 17-18 years old).

Also, unique archaeological finds from Saka mounds Taksay (West Kazakhstan region), Taldy-2 (Karaganda region) and Berel (East Kazakhstan region) are presented at the exhibition.

In total, the exhibition features 292 items from the funds of the National Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The masterpieces of ancient and medieval art of Kazakhstan represented at the exhibition are only a small part of the works of the nameless masters of the past, reflecting the originality of the heritage of the Eurasian steppe culture.

The solemn opening of the exhibition was addressed by the Minister of Culture of Northern Macedonia Hysni Ismaili, Deputy Director of the National Museum of Kazakhstan Almaz Nurazkhan, Director of the National Archaeological Museum of Northern Macedonia Goran Sanev, who expressed gratitude to Kazakhstanis for a unique exhibition, for the opportunity to discover the rich historical and cultural heritage of Kazakhstan through contact with its ancient and medieval original art. The speakers noted the diversity and richness of the history of two peoples. Both sides expressed confidence in the further improvement and development of relations between Northern Macedonia and Kazakhstan.

It is worth noting that in the late 1960s – early 1970s, an archaeological sensation occurred in the vicinity of Almaty: in the Issyk mound, which was investigated by the eminent archaeologist Kemal Akishev, the remains of the Saka king, the Golden Warrior, were discovered. An invaluable find dubbed the "Kazakh Tutankhamen" and recognized as the discovery of the century. Golden ornaments from the crown of the ancient ruler of the steppes – winged horses-tulpars – became part of the national coat of arms of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and the sculpture of the Golden Warrior was installed on Independence Square in Almaty.

Almost half a century later, the National Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan announces an international tour – “The Golden Man Procession through the Museums of the World.” As part of the large-scale project, the exhibition was successfully held in the museums of Belarus, Russia, Azerbaijan, China, Poland, South Korea and Uzbekistan.
