TO RULE AND TO DAZZLE
Jewels and Jewellery in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in the 16th and 17th c.
NOTICE! On July 27th–28th and August 3rd–4th exhibition will be open till 8 p.m.
’Jewels’ is a word which defines extremely valuable and unique items. Both categories may refer to insignia of power, signs of office, valuables of sentimental importance and ceremonial costume decorations. The exhibition at the Royal Castle represents a unique opportunity to see miniatures of the masterpieces from the private treasuries of Bona Sforza and Zygmunt August which have been brought in from Munich, Bern, Milan and New York.
The idea behind the exhibition is to show the art of jewellery from the Vasa dynasty when the local craftsmen achieved true mastery. Some of these old Polish valuables, primarily regalia from the Crown Treasury, suffered damage. The secular jewels survived, since they had been hidden in the ground or donated as votive offerings to Marian sanctuaries. The phenomenon of Sarmatian piety is best illustrated by a priceless set of jewels on loan for the first time from the Jasna Góra Monastery of the Pauline Order. These artefacts tell more about the power of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and the exceptional artistic taste of their elites than documents preserved in archives do.
