Hand Painted Russian Music Box

Special Price $99.99 Regular Price $298.00
For this Russian music box, our artisans in Russia recreate Moscow's iconic St. Basil's Cathedral by hand shaping each spire of linden wood, then adding exquisite hand painted details with multiple layers of paint and lacquer in the traditional blue and white style of Gzhel ceramic painting. The Cathedral revolves as the music box in the hand-painted base plays Moscow Nights. This Russian music box is handcrafted exclusively for Uno Alla Volta. Approx. 5 in. diameter x 10 in. tall. Limited edition of 100.

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.
