In her speech, the chief conservator of the Amber Museum Irina Radinovich said that the exhibition name "Divine Painting" reflects the artist's admiration for the unique nature of the Baltic gem, its distinct texture, color and luminescence.
"Admiring the picturesque nature of amber, the artist has been collecting unique samples for many years, – told Irina Radinovich. – According to Lyudmila, author of the "picturesque master pieces" is the Higher Power that created the Universe filled with variety of Beauty. Amber is a small piece showing power and love of the Creator. That is why some amber wonderstones are presented as befits paintings – encased in frames and united with one common theme.
