Slovak Icons On Show

Icons from as far back as the 15th century are on show at Warsaw's State Archaeological Museum in an exhibition entitled Between the East and the West: Icons of Slovakia. The collection, from the Saris Museum in Bardejov, Slovakia, is one of the most valuable and interesting of its type in Central Europe.

The icons reveal the cultural diversity of the Saris region and eastern Slovakia, whose inhabitants form an ethnic and religious melting pot, shaped by the intermingling traditions of the Roman Catholic and the Orthodox Church.

The Warsaw museum's icon exhibition coincides with a photographic exhibition entitled Wooden Sacral Architecture in Central Europe assembled by the regional office for cultural heritage protection in Zilina, Slovakia. These pictures depict not only the small wooden Orthodox churches and the spectacular landscapes of eastern Slovakia, but also traditional little wooden churches in neighboring Poland and Ukraine.
