An exhibition of the St. Petersburg-based Russian Ethnography Museum opened May 12 in Anchorage, Alaska
It features more than 200 unique applied-art exhibits providing an insight into the life of indigenous Siberian ethnic groups. The exhibition will acquaint visitors with pagan religions of Arctic ethnic groups and witch doctors. The witch-doctor concept has now spread throughout the world. Consequently, many people would like to learn more about witch doctors, as well as history's spiritual aspects. "For instance, we attended an international exhibition dealing with this subject in Rome last year. That exhibition attracted an unprecedented number of visitors," Vladimir Grusman, general director of the Russian Ethnography Museum, told RIA Novosti. "The current exhibition was prepared especially for Alaska. We did our best to show the link between witch doctors and people's everyday life," Grusman added. "Some exhibits, which had been received by our Museum in the first decade of the 20th century, were selected for the Anchorage exhibition. We tried to single out similar historical aspects on both shores of the Bering Strait. There were many such aspects," Grusman stressed. The exhibition is to last for three months.
