A family of collectors founds collection of modern Ural stone carvings in 2010. It totals more than 60 volumetric mosaics created since 2008.
The basis of the collection is works of two Ural workshops - stone-cutting studio “Svyatogor” and A. Antonov’s Creative Workshop. Densely cooperating with the largest Ural stone carvers associations, collectors promote the development of traditional applied art and help masters to come to a new professional level.
The thematic range of the collection covers fairy tales and authentic heritage of Russia, world history and cultural plots.
A separate movement is drawn up by public awareness campaign: stone carving books publishing, exhibition organization, carrying out of scientific researches, popularization of Ural stone carving art in Russia and throughout the world.
