For a fourth consecutive year the Burgas Museum invites patriotic Bulgarians to help restore valuable Renaissance icons. They are part of the collection of RHM-Burgas from donated and saved works of art. They arrived in the museum in 1995 and 1998 after a police investigations in Burgas. Then the icons were conservated, but in order to return their beauty, they have to be completely restored.
At present, about 10 icons from the collection of the Historical Museum need urgent restoration, all of them from the royal order of the iconostasis - about 1 x 0.80 m in size.
As a result of the donation campaign in the past three years and the project "Bulgarian Saints" 11 icons were preserved and restored. They can be seen in the permanent exhibition of the museum, and the sponsors are mentioned below.
The initiative is part of the donation campaign Autumn 2018, which allows for tax reductions at the end of the calendar year. With a donation for culture, you can reduce the amount of annual tax bases by up to 15 per cent.
