We would like to congratulate Boaz Vaadia on his recent award at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

 

Born in Israel with Bukharian ancestors, Vaadia was honoured by the Russian American Foundation for his exceptional contribution to promoting Bukharian heritage and culture through his brilliant bluestone sculptures. The ceremony took place on June 11th in the Temple of Dendur at the museum.
