“This is dedicated to all great conquerors
– past, present and future.”
The Russian Museum in Saint Petersburg boasted the exhibition dedicated to the 175th anniversary of the birth of the world-famous Russian battle painter Vasily Vereshchagin where more than 150 of his works are displayed.
The visitors were able to see one of the most outstanding works of Vereshchagin – the painting “The Apotheosis of War”. The canvas with a pyramid of human skulls is without a doubt the most recognizable painting of Vereshchagin. This is his protest against wars and violence. It is written on a frame: “This is dedicated to all great conquerors – past, present and future”.
We join the appeal of Vereshchagin: Let’s play the games and stop the wars!
Our active program includes:
- Shootings in field environment with real samples of small-weapon that shoot with blank ammunition;
