“VERA” is an international award in the visual arts. For the first time it was awarded at the closing of the first Moscow International Festival of Arts “Traditions and Modernity” in 2007.
The festival statuette was created by Viktor Mitroshin, a famous sculptor, Honored Artist of Russia, the author of prizes for many Russian and foreign competitions. To realize the creative idea the sculptor used natural materials – greenish Ural serpentine, rock crystal, bronze.
