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 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.
