The art of woodcarving has been practiced in Russia for centuries. Sophisticated volume woodcarving can be found not only in the traditional Russian decorative house elements, but also in furniture, various household utensils, and in church iconostases. Over time, woodcarvers learned to create rich shapes and patterns, resulting in wooden figures or figurines. They are carved from linden blocks with a chisel and an extremely sharp knife.
Our figurines are not only pieces of masterful sculptural woodcarving, they are also artfully hand-painted with an incredible amount of details.
