Among the exhibits of the exhibition were fragments of real stained glass, which clearly demonstrate the fragility of not only art but also human fates.

Thanks to this project, the main meaning is coming - the life of Mariupol has broken today, as well as these stained glasses through russian occupation. We try to talk about these works to immerse people in the value of art and the motives of Ukrainianness that were embodied in the monumental works of Mariupol
