Russian Zhostovo Purple Angel Figurine

Special Price $49.99 Regular Price $128.00
The traditional Russian folk art known as Zhostovo originated in a village near Moscow in the early 19th century. Today, artisans keep alive the tradition with our Russian Zhostovo angel figurine. Each is masterfully handcrafted by applying multiple layers of brilliant acrylics to create details with exquisite depth that appear to be lit from within. Our angels are hand-carved from basswood then meticulously hand-painted, exclusively for Uno Alla Volta. Each angel figurine is made from the hearts and hands of artisans, one at a time; no two will be exactly alike. Each hand-carved and painted angel figurine measures approx. 5 in. tall.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper class may delight in the exclusivity of a handmade object, the working class may appreciate it for the time and effort that goes into its creation. No matter the reason, one thing is certain – Handmade goods connect us to one another. Crafting an item by hand allows an artist to put their heart and soul into their work, giving each individual piece character and making it truly one-of-a-kind. It also reminds us that our hands can do so much more than just operate machines - They can measure, sculpt, paint, and carve. Our artisans rely on their hands to not only bring their ideas to life, but to provide you with a treasure that is uniquely yours.
