Photographic footage from this news article:,_exhibition_in_the_Museum_of_Simferopol_History No video was taken. — Виктор Пинчук (talk) 04:59, 28 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

Could you confirm as a formality you attended the exhibition opening? I know this sounds odd. Heavy Water (talk) 16:59, 28 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

There are two sources from the "Afisha7" website and they both open for me:
P.S. Sorry, I don’t know, which sources are "unnecessary sources" (for the future). — Виктор Пинчук (talk) 14:59, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Виктор Пинчук: ... I get the message: "Sorry, you have been blocked. You are unable to access" ... Maybe the site is blocking access from Western countries. --SVTCobra 15:14, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply
Maybe, but I don’t know which one site will be blocking access from Western countries in the next article.

P.S. There is an "afisha7" present here too:,_CrimeaВиктор Пинчук (talk) 15:39, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply

Well, I guess I was able to access it then. By "unnecessary sources" I didn't mean that, I meant policy prohibits sources which aren't needed to verify the content of the article. Heavy Water (talk) 16:40, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply



The picture labelled "An exhibit" contains approximately 72 metal and 8 mineral figurines, for total of about 80. The text says there are "over 70". Moreover the only miniature pieces we can see on display are on the pyramid. I therefore changed the caption the "The exhibits". It's suggested that the statuettes of Ganesh and Buddha are not displayed in the cabinet, and so the caption has been reverted to "An exhibit". Actually both these are visible in the other photographs. Rich Farmbrough, 20:10 6 June 2023 (GMT).

Perhaps Victor might advise. Rich Farmbrough, 20:10 6 June 2023 (GMT).
There are statues of Ganesha and the Buddha on the pyramid. Are they the same ones as at the top of the article? I don't know (Виктор might). When reverting, I was specifically thinking of "the" excluding the possibility of other exhibits in the Legends of Oriental Folklore exhibition. Obviously there are multiple pieces to the pyramid display; I don't think that prevents us from saying "an exhibit" to refer to the pyramid and statuettes in their totality, as an exhibit, part of the exhibition, leaving "an exhibit" as a safe statement regardless of whether the statuettes are the same or other exhibits were on display. Also, note WN:ARCHIVE prohibits significant changes from 24 hours after publication — though this would not be significant. Heavy Water (talk) 20:39, 6 June 2023 (UTC)Reply
The two statuettes in the top row of photos (Buddha and Ganesha) are present in the general photo below. In my original version, it said "Exhibits". But you native speakers would know better:-) — Виктор Пинчук (talk) 05:32, 7 June 2023 (UTC)Reply
