During the preparation of the exhibition, together with our partners we tried to overcome the main challenge of the project—how to create an exhibition about Crimea without Crimean materials. The most famous collections, which include iconic historical rarities and outstanding artistic works, remain in annexed territory. At the request of Mystetskyi Arsenal, museums in mainland Ukraine—from Kharkiv to Lviv—went through their collections for items of Crimean origin or related to Crimean subject matter. Altogether, along with museum staff, we reviewed more than two thousand items, only a portion of which are presented in the exhibition. This was an extremely interesting experience that created an integrated picture of the interaction between the Crimean and mainland collections, which complement each other. The results were unexpected—sometimes the stories around the objects were no less fascinating than the objects themselves. These amazing legends about the exhibit items are presented in this book.
