The ancient art of Siberia

The ancient art of Siberia is one of the most notable pages in the history of an unknown, mysterious and huge world of our ancestors, of which we still know far from everything, so it is full of secrets even nowadays.
These covers thousands of petroglyths, stone monuments, decorations made of bone, stone, wood, birch skin, leather, metal etc. Our virtual museum will introduce you to all kinds of ancient Siberian art and its original samples which span the period from Stone Age to Middle Age as well as to the history of discovery and study of the unique monuments.
