UDK: 745.51

Pages: 96 - 99


In the article, on the example of pupils’ creative works, the ancient traditional art of processing shell stone in Dagestan is explored. Mosaic technology has been developed in the region since ancient times. The art of stone processing – shells created using the mosaic technique are presented in many expositions of museums in the Republic of Dagestan. The traditional processing of shells is present in the decor elements of the na-tional Dagestan women's costume and in the decor of the region's jewelry in the late 19th – early 20th centu-ries. The author shows that the technology of shell stone processing is successfully recreated in modern times with the reconstruction of traditional techniques by school pupils.
