The Exhibition presents valuable specimens of pottery made in Dvin and Ani from the 9th to the 13th centuries. Having preserved their links with the origins that go deep into the millennia, these ceramic objects manifest the uniform principles and tendencies, found in the artistic thinking and creativity of the Armenian sculpture and miniature painting of those centuries.

These examples mark the acme of the medieval Armenian applied arts in terms of diversity and originality of style, colour, form and ornamentation, as well as the unrivalled level of technical mastery.

The Exhibition presents:

  • many-coloured glazed vessels
  • lustrous faïence ceremonial sets
  • examples of pottery with carved, painted, stamped and onlaid ornamentation
  • exceptional ceramics, imported to Armenia in the 9th-13th centuries.
