Exquisite legacy of antiquity

627 timeviewed

Currently, the historic-cultural museum in Aulieata keeps unique valuable silver jewelry. We saw surprisingly beautiful, exquisite vintage items, when visiting the museum hall "Ethnography". The exhibition presents several types of flat, narrow and twisted bracelets, dating back to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Acording to the museum’s worker Moldri Kyzdarbekova, most of these decorations are gifts from local people. For example, in 1970 someone from Taraz brought a silver flat bracelet with disconnected rounded ends.

Mostly the local people handed these decorations to the museum, said Acting over Head of the department of scientific exposition work and accounting of the museum’s fund Moldir Kyzdarbekova. For example, in 1970 a resident of the city of Taraz brought a silver flat bracelet with disconnected rounded ends. The center of the bracelet is decorated with plant-zoomorphic patterns alternating with three convex hemispherical figures.

In 1979 another person from Taraz gave the museum two bracelets left from his mother. These bracelets were large in volumes. The jeweler who produced them was able to show the diversity and beauty of national patterns and the spiritual wealth of the Kazakhs. The presence of zig zag lines along the edges, triangular figures and various patterns made in the technique of weaving, attest to the high skill of the jeweler. Unfortunately, it has not been possible to establish his name yet.

In 1989 a local resident donated a bracelet made in XIX-XX centuries. The jewelry was inherited from the grandmother of the person. The silver surface of the bracelet is decorated with embossed patterns.

In 2005, a resident of Baurzhan Momyshuly village donated the museum two silver bracelets. They are made in the form of a semicircle and on both sides are decorated with eight figures located across the images.
