The unique philatelic exhibition “Unbreakable, unconquered Cossack spirit of the Ukrainian people” will last 7 days in Lviv. A particularly valuable exhibit will be presented at the exhibition – the posthumous mask of Taras Shevchenko.
The exhibition “Unbreakable, unconquered Cossack spirit of the Ukrainian people” will consist of two expositions.
“Ukraine is a single country” – dedicated to Ukrainian culture and the struggle for independence. “Kobzar’s Last Path” is a unique collection of exhibits collected at the initiative of Oleksandr Kanivets during the International Postal Requiem Walk along the route of T.G. Shevchenko’s body transportation from St. Petersburg (Smolensk Cemetery) to Kaniv (on Chernech Gora). With a group of like-minded people, he thoroughly studied the route by which, fulfilling the last will of the poet, his friends took his body to reburial. For each of the listed cities through which Kobzar’s last journey passed, envelopes with thematic images were made by special order. During the route, special redemption of envelopes was carried out in each city and town according to the date of the funeral procession’s stay there 160 years ago.
The uniqueness of these exhibitions also lies in the fact that printing products (envelopes depicting various stages of the struggle of the people of Ukraine for their independence) will be made on their subject, which will be donated to the museum’s funds for lifelong storage.
The opening of the exhibition is tomorrow, July 22, at 4:00 p.m. in the premises of Sensoteka on the street. U. Samchuk, 22.
The author of the idea and organizer of the exposition is a well-known philatelist, a member of the Kyiv Society of the Association of Philatelists of Ukraine, a public figure, a member of the Association of Graduates of the Faculty of Law of Taras Shevchenko Kyiv National University – Oleksandr Kanivets (Kyiv).
