"Baikal Jewelry Salon 2018" and competition "Silver Babr"
From November 1 to November 5, 2018 in Irkutsk was held "Baikal Jewelry Salon 2018". The main event of the exhibition was international competition "Silver Babr". Young representatives of stone-cutting and jewelry art from Russia, China and Mongolia struggled for the main prize - "Silver Babr" - the statue is an exact copy of the babr, which is depicted on the emblem of the Irkutsk region.
The Grand prix of the exhibition won sculptor and stone-cutter of our workshop - Aleksandr Shiryaev for his work "The birth of Venus". This stone-cutting sculpture is an author's ironic interpretation of Sandro Botticelli's masterpiece.
