Earlier, in the 1700s, many different kinds of folk art arose here such as an icon painting, gold and silver embroidery and engraving. The creations of Mstera artists are well-known around the world. They won awards by Grand-Prix, the gold and silver medals on the world exhibition. The Mstera miniatures usually represent characters from real life, folklore, literary and history works. Warmth and gentleness of colors, depth of landscape backgrounds (often with blue dales in the back), small size and squatness of human figurines, and subtlety of framing pattern done in gold are typical for the Mstera miniature. The Art of Mstera is represented in the collections of the biggest museums in Russia (Russian Museum (St. Petersburg), Tretyakov Gallery(Moscow) and in the world.
