Tallinn City Museum

This medal was designed by Margus Kadarik for the 150th anniversary of Jakob Hurt, a notable Estonian folklorist, theologist, linguist and activist during the so-called national awakening at the end of the 19th century. It is one of the best examples of Estonian medal design from the late-Soviet period. Only a few years before producing a medal to commemorate Jakob Hurt would have been unthinkable in the circumstances of the Soviet occupation.
