Museum stories on Saturdays: The image of Chronos in art. Journey of time (video)

Continuing our series "Museum Stories" on Saturdays, we offer you another video clip - the story of the God of time Chronos in art and images of Chronos that ornate the items presented in the museum Collection exposition.

The image of the god Chronos was first described in the 8th century B.C., and was refined by sculptors, painters and watchmakers from various countries in subsequent eras.

The achievements of Greco-Roman culture gradually faded form the memory of Christian ancients and artists and they began to identify Chronos, the god of time, with another mythological character - Kronos or Kronos, thanks to the consonance of their names.
We invite you to the museum Collection to examine the images of Chronos adorning the items in our exposition.
