A collective exhibition of masters who are following the glorious traditions of folk arts and crafts named "Ethnopolis" has opened at the Center of Ethnic Culture in Makhachkala. 12 artists from several North Caucasus republics present over 90 pieces of art here. The authors have come up with some unique techniques for making panel pictures based on the folk traditions of quality.

Well-known Daghestani masters Jamila Aziyalova and Zainab Djangutaeva are displaying their decorative panels, cushion cases and bags made in different carpet and palace techniques sometimes with Kaitag embroidery. Kabardino-Balkaria’s Ruslan Mazloev presents his unusual straw mats named a "Tree of Life". Gassan Effendiev’s new collection of handbags and wallets surprises visitors by its unconventional leather working. Zhanna Kurbanova addresses traditional way of life – her remarkable "Craftswoman of Balkhar" draws everybody’s attention. It has taken her 7 months to complete the knitted ornamental rug.

Exhibition curator Djavgarat Surkhay noted that exhibitions like this give reason to hope that the native craft traditions will not be lost but find a new life in interpretations of young artists. Deputy Daghestan minister of culture Elena Garunova, a visitor to the event, highlighted the fact that masters had based their work on culture his or her people using a variety of ornaments.  "The works you’ve done gives inspiration to what had been there in Daghestan for centuries.

Surprisingly, all these things can be used in a modern interior. Reviving and developing the traditional vision, you are improving ornamental motifs and forms meanwhile creating your own style." -she said.

"Ethnopolis" is scheduled to run until September 10.
