An unfinished painting of a humanoid and an astronaut meeting has been found under old wallpaper in the Palace of Pioneers in Izhevsk. It was reported on the VKontakte social network.
According to the chief astronomer of the observatory Ramil Shagiev, the wall depicts a “meeting” on a terrestrial planet, and the unfinished composition is a conflict between the artist and the administration.
Director of organization Natalya Golovkova invited artists Igor and Ignat Potin to the artistic council and expertise.
The fate of the fresco is being decided now. Someone insists on restoration, but experts have ruled that there is no artistic value in it. They suggest either digitizing it for placement in the astromuseum or drawing a new one.
