“The cultural legacy of Uzbekistan in the world collections” is a wonderful project, since a huge number of true treasures are stored outside the country, it’s time to generalize them into a single code. It seems to me that this project is an important step towards conducting a thorough inventory of all artifacts related to Uzbekistan that are stored around the world and especially in Russia. Because as soon as we undertake to specifically study something, carefully examine or restore, a new wonderful world opens up for us.”

“Thanks to these books, there is a unique opportunity to get acquainted with architectural monuments and learn the essence of the inscriptions left to us by our ancestors. In addition, the published materials demonstrate the wisdom and greatness of the Uzbek people, the greatness of Uzbekistan, the genius of scientists nurtured in this land, the high civilization of this region”.

«ARCHITECTURAL EPIGRAPHY OF UZBEKISTAN» IN 2019, WORK WILL CONTINUE ON A UNIQUE SERIES OF BOOKS-ALBUMS «ARCHITECTURAL EPIGRAPHY OF UZBEKISTAN»

Today in Uzbekistan, dynamic modernity goes hand in hand with deep age-old wisdom and tradition. The unique project “Architectural epigraphy of Uzbekistan”, already published in 13 volumes, tells about epigraphic inscriptions on ancient monuments of the country, representing the richest cultural and historical heritage. The long and painstaking work of the scientists of Uzbekistan to decipher these wise messages from time immemorial lasted more than six years. The main idea of the project is to bring ideas about a civilized and enlightened Islam as a religion of peace, goodness and tolerance to the general public. In 2019, this work will continue.

The project plans include the publication of richly illustrated books-albums devoted to the architectural epigraphy of Bukhara (2 volumes), Khiva (2 volumes), and also the books-album devoted to epigraphic inscriptions on the ancient majestic monument of Samarkand – Gur Emir.
