Russian Folk Art

      Russian folk art embodies both traditions and values held by the Russian people and the beauty and majesty of the Russian land. Talented artists are masters at crafting delightful and wonderful toys, boxes, dolls and lacquerware that provide a link to the past, using designs, techniques and shared cultural experiences and beliefs. Folk art ranges from the world famous Matryoshka nesting dolls and playful Bogorodsk bear carvings to colorful and exotic golden Khokhloma and stunning lacquer miniatures.
