Bogorodsk Wood Carvings from Russia

     Exquisitely carved wooden sculptures, toys and figures come from the ancient settlement of Bogorodskoye (pop. 9000) where master wood carvers handed down their traditions over many generations. The village was formerly known as Medvezhy Ugol (Bear Corner) because of the thick woods surrounding it. Peter the Great played with wooden toy soldiers made here over 300 years ago. Simple and fascinating, the action of a twirling wooden ball on a string makes the bear (a favorite character, but not an exclusive one) perform complex actions, such as masterfully juggling colored balls. Some of the toys are activated by a push-button action. These carvings are prized by collectors young and old.
