The young artists of the art school learned about the meaning of ornaments on national clothes.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Pupils of the art department of the Boris Molchanov children’s art school visited the Taimyr Museum of Local Lore. The guide Lidiya Aksenova told the children about the female and male Nganasan costume peculiarities.

“Each ornament on national clothes had a meaning and a name. The patterns told about a person’s marital status, social status, age and the presence of children. The Nganasan costume was sewn from rovduga – tanned reindeer skin, and the color was applied to it with natural materials”, the museum specialist told the young artists.

The excursion participants also visited the hall with the Parallel Worlds of Tubyaku exposition dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the last Nganasan shaman Tubyaku Kosterkin’s birth. The children got acquainted with the basic elements of the shamanic costume.

The teacher Elina Marchuk drew the students’ attention to the fact that in this exhibition cult collections dedicated to the Nganasan people culture phenomenon – shamanism – are fully presented for the first time.

The excursion took place within the Taimyr Ornament’s Magic social project, which is being implemented thanks to the support of the World of New Opportunities charitable program of the Nornickel company.

Earlier we told about a unique item from the private collection of a Norilsk resident – a tambourine of the Nganasan shaman Dyuhade.
