Beautiful Soviet Stained Glass

This is from the window in the museum we got to visit today. It’s an ethnographic and regional museum that was begun in 1856 and had to be rebuilt after the 1879 Great Fire of Irkutsk. The current building was constructed beginning in 1883. It is beautiful and I found many interesting things in their collection. They also have the best gift shop I’ve seen yet.
