About museum

The Independent Creative Association «Samotsvety» was founded in 2012 where stone-cutting and cabinetry workshops started working. The Uymon painting became the basis of the Association’s work. This is a new trend in decorative art. The best works are selected to be shown in the exhibition fund of the museum for the working process of creative workshops. They make up the collection of the museum. At present, the Museum of Stone is being built.

The collection includes works made in the technique of the Uymon painting: decorative panels, plates, caskets, vases, writing materials as well as unique samples of processed minerals, stone vases, felt products with minerals and paintings, felt workpieces with minerals and painting, carved cedar workpieces, and pottery.
