The UB Post - - POLITICS -

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Her­mitage Mu­seum in Saint Peters­burg, Rus­sia vis­ited Mon­go­lia to meet with the Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs to dis­cuss the pos­si­bil­ity of launch­ing an ex­hibit of Mongolian ar­ti­facts and art pieces in 2019.

Act­ing For­eign Min­is­ter Ts.Munkh-Orgil re­ceived Cu­ra­tor of the Cen­tral Asian Col­lec­tion and re­search sci­en­tist at the Ori­en­tal Depart­ment of the State Her­mitage Mu­seum, Mark Kra­marovsky on Oc­to­ber 11.

The two sides dis­cussed the pos­si­bil­ity of launch­ing an ex­hibit of Mongolian ar­ti­facts and cul­tural her­itage in Ulaan­baatar, se­lect Rus­sian cities, and even­tu­ally Eastern Europe.

Preliminary dis­cus­sions set the pos­si­ble date of the ex­hi­bi­tion at around the sec­ond quar­ter of 2019. The two sides agreed that the prepa­ra­tion of the ex­hibit should be­gin early, as pri­vate col­lec­tors in Mon­go­lia will be con­tacted to use their col­lec­tions for the ex­hi­bi­tion.

The Her­mitage Mu­seum is in pos­ses­sion of one of the ear­li­est known Mongolian cal­lig­ra­phy stone ar­ti­facts, the Ching­gis Khaan stone. It also pos­sesses orig­i­nal paizas or gereges, a tablet car­ried by Mon­gol of­fi­cials and en­voys to sig­nify cer­tain priv­i­leges and au­thor­ity.

The Her­mitage Mu­seum also pro­posed the Mongolian For­eign Min­istry to copy and ar­chive im­por­tant his­tor­i­cal record­ings in the for­eign re­la­tions of Mon­go­lia.
