Special exhibition "The work of Jakob Wedel"

The special exhibition is currently displayed in the museum and shows the artwork of the sculptor Jakob Wedel. The exhibition includes more than 200 sculptures that the artist created within a few decades. They are made out of wood, plaster or bronze.

Wedel took a part of his collection with him when he left the Soviet Union in 1988. The rest of his work was made by Wedel in Germany.

The sculptures can be categorized by various topics: ethos, people and nature in Kyrgyzstan, wooden fantasy-art, sculptures of women, and busts. His detailed depictions of emotions reflected in the busts and his depiction of life-like animals are striking to many of our visitors.

Jakob Wedel donated 172 pieces of his art to the museum which enlarged its display substantially. Four of his sculptures are on permanent display and silently talk about the history of pain during Stalin's regime in the Soviet Union.
