Currently painting Lady with an Ermine can be admired not only at Wawel, where it is issued during renovation of its home - Czartoryski Museum in Krakow, but also in Krakow Amber Museum.
The beauty of amber has been appreciated for many centuries. This is the "stone" that remembers the oldest history. Its warm hue and unique shapes are an inspiration not only for jewelry or useful objects, but also the amazing sculptures, framed as the one referred to in this Article. Amber sculptures depict stories of paintings of famous painters and works of prominent sculptors.
Amber version of the Lady with an Ermine was made at the request of Marian Kellar. The author and designer is a company called Art Amber Kus, which is owned by Przemyslaw Kus and his father Wieslaw. Their company has existed for 13 years, although they've been making sculptures long before, previously from wood, and even potatoes and soap.
When did their adventure with sculpting amber begin? How much material is lost during the carving? Is each piece suitable for creating these incredible stories? ... Answers to these and many other questions can be found in an interview with Anna Sado from 10th April 2014 for the portal amber.com.pl.
Therefore, interested are encouraged to visit our museum, as well as to read the article "The art of carving in amber" - an interview with Wieslaw and Przemyslaw Kus on the portal amber.com.pl.
