The antique collection of Michael and Elena Karisalovs has been forming for several decades. The first exhibits were bronze helmets that were collected by Irina Ivanovna Karisalova, Mikhail’s mother. A music school teacher, she, according to her son, was an enthusiastic person who “was constantly looking for something new.” It was she who began collecting objects of applied art, painting, furniture, infecting this passion of her son. Today, the antique collection includes nearly 90 monuments: in addition to helmets, it includes bronze rings, painted ancient Greek vases and two sculptural portraits.
