From amber to amber fibers

The idea was born in Cairo…

In 2006, in Cairo, at National Library, Dr. sc. ing. Inga Lasenko paid attention to an article about the use of amber in the ancient Egypt. It said that the ancient Egyptians used containers made of amber for blood storage, because blood doesn’t coagulate in them. It is considered that pharaohs took the blood bath, because they believed that the blood revives the dead and makes old and weak young.

On Thursday 14 March, at the Metropolitan’s residence of Kiev’s Saint Sofia Cathedral museum complex, Andris Bērziņš, President of Latvia and patron of Rīga’s 2014 European Capital of Culture year, opened an exhibition – What does amber still have in mind? Latvia. Amber. Innovation – during his official visit to Ukraine. This is a unique exhibition, created with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to promote Rīga as a 2014 European Capital of Culture and present one of Latvia’s most accomplished scientific achievements in the form of art.
