LVIV OF 1772-1775 TO BE SHOWCASED IN WROCLAW

02/12/2014

Lviv panorama of 1772-1775 to be exhibited in September 2015 in Hala Stulecia, Wroclaw. Currently Polish specialists are restoring plastic panorama of the Ukrainian city, which was created in 1930 by architecture Janusz Witwiski.

The panorama model scale is 1:2000, located on six discs of 2x2.1m each one. The ancient Lviv panorama is presented by houses, churches, monasteries, totally about 300 buildings.

'The buildings are made of cardboard and plywood covered with copper and lead. The creators used wires and even celluloid', Adam Grosowski, the restorer, said. 'They all are made with high fidelity preserving all architectural details. Every chimney and every window is perfectly recreated. Moreover, for giving the city a historical touch the authors intentionally underlined the antiquity of the buildings by recreating their spots, cracks and exterior damages'.

While being exhibited the model will be lit with special technologies to create different light of the day.

The exhibition in Wroclaw will be the first official presentation of Lviv panorama of the 18th century (even Lviv locals have not had an opportunity to see it yet).
