ONLY 1 LEFT! This masterful sculpture is handcrafted by our husband-and-wife team in their workshop not far from Moscow. Olga meticulously carves the figure from a single piece of carefully selected linden wood that has been dried for at least two years, then Viktor brings the figure to life, hand painting the features and clothing adorned with snowy northern scenes. Each sculpture is unique, distinctive and reflects the artisans' individual style and talent. Approximately 16 in. tall. No more than 20 will ever be made.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
