Collection(s)Several thousand stones (2,000) carved by peasants craftsmen from the villages of Romania. Stone pieces, many of household utility, but also having aesthetic value, craftsman putting his soul on his rock carving. It ss the most comprehensive collection of peasant stone art. The creator of this collection, the poet Lucian Avramescu, opened it to the public (entrance is free), aiming to demonstrate that the country that gave sculptors Brancusi and George Apostu has a civilization of stone, less known, not just a civilization of wood. The museum is in the former stone mansion of the owner, with annexes of stone over a hundred years old, which belonged to the grandfather of the poet's father. The spacious halls host permanent or seasonal exhibitions of some artists (exhibition of portraits caricatures of famous illustrator Marian Avramescu, who took over 40 international awards, entitled "Citizens of the village Terra"), the exhibition of nudes of Marianeta Apostu, daughter of George Apostu, graphics exposed to Bucharest, works in oil of the sculptor Laurenţiu Burlacu, bronze and stone works of George Apostu, our great sculptor who died in Paris. For many school children who come to visit the museum, we built a park of pets and birds.
