New instalment of Mikhail Piotrovsky’s TV series


The cultural TV channel Russia-K has broadcast the latest programme in the authorial series by Hermitage Director Mikhail Piotrovsky – “Amazons”.

Are the Amazons an attractive myth or a handed-down story about warrior maidens who actually existed? They are mentioned by Herodotus and by the early Russian chronicle The Tale of Bygone Years. They fought against the heroes of Antiquity and met with Alexander the Great in Asia Minor. Wrapped in an aura of myths and legends, the images of the virgin warriors feature splendidly in works of art from the Hermitage collection. But who were they really? The programme is devoted to the Amazons of ancient times and Amazons in art.
