Art


Art is the integral part of the history of Armenia. From the times of the Urartian empire up to now, the Armenian art has passed a difficult and interesting way. To this witnesses the Urartian city - fortress Erebuni, which is in capital Yerevan. During excavation numerous things- weapons decorated by jewels, necklaces, sculptures, coins, etc. were found.. All this speaks about an art of ancient times. In the London British museum there is a bronze head and a hand of goddess Anahit.


Christianity is a mighty source of the world art. Birth of new genres and approaches in the field of music and sculpture is connected to the adoption of Christianity in 301. In the development of the national art a huge contribution has the spiritual instructor Mesrop Mashtotz, the founder of the Armenian alphabet.
