Russian Folk Art

      Russian folk art constitutes traditions and values held by national culture and the beauty and majesty of the Russian native scenery. Sophisticated artists become masters at crafting delightful and wonderful dolls, woodcarvings, toys, boxes, and objects of every day use. All provide a link to the past with venerable 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.
