What is common between the legendary Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yassawi and Italian autonomy Friuli? The answer lies in the oldest type of arts - the mosaic. The exhibition in Astana provides an opportunity to visually evaluate all facets of the mosaic art. The exhibition features the works of the masters from the Italian school of Friuli known to the whole world. The school was opened in 1922 and has extensive experience in training mosaic craftsmen. Today, the school is known far beyond the borders of Italy, and the works of its graduates adorn main attractions of cities around the world. Recently a group of students and teachers of Kasteyev Kazakh Academy of Arts took training courses at the legendary school. Masters of Italian mosaic highlighted the level of training of the Kazakh students and teachers.

Mosaic is a broad concept; it includes a range of techniques of creating an image from individual particles. These particles can be a variety of materials: stone, glazes, glass, ceramics, and beads. Combining methods vary as well: there are Roman, Florentine, pixel, thrash mosaics. In addition, this form of art is hardly influenced by time thanks to physical and chemical characteristics of stone and glass. The memory of the works of masters of mosaic remains forever. There are many outstanding monuments of architecture in Kazakhstan decorated with mosaic.

 

Togzhan ADILBEKOVA, HEAD OF EXPOSITIONS SERVICE, NATIONAL MUSEUM OF KAZAKHSTAN:

Kazakhstan School, like any school, complements the achievements of previous centuries. We all know mosaics that adorn the mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yassawi, the 10-11 century is the dawn of architecture in Kazakhstan, when the buildings were decorated with murals, beautiful ceramic plates such as terracotta slabs of Aisha Bibi mausoleum, they still do not have their analogues.
