The exhibition will be the first comprehensive display of sacred works from the 17th through the first half of the 18th centuries, which are painted with tempera or oil on cloth (linen or silk). These icons, which used to hang on the walls of churches, depict various themes, including scenes of the Passion of Christ and the Last Judgment.

According to the museum, the restored Shroud from the 15th century, which came from the Church of the Archangel Michael in the village Zhyrivka, deserves special attention. The Shroud is the only Ukrainian work of this type and a unique example of Ukrainian sacred embroidery from the medieval period.
