"Marshal Zhukov", 15"H, nu59, Russian Unique Wooden Nutcracker
This nutcracker is unique creation of two artists: a carver and the painter decorator. It is crafted by had out linden wood and painted with tempera, gouache and acrylic. It is decorated with burning on wood technique, where a part of the military uniform is burned through magnifying glass. The technique is very complicated and time consuming so just literally a few Russian artists masterfully implement it on wooden handcraft. This work is called after Marshal Zhukov, one of the most prominent military commanders during the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945). Workshop "Tabo", Sergiyev Posad, Russia.
This is one of twelve unique nutcrackers (all of them are historic characters - Emperors, Czars Dukes, Statesmen, Marshals) created and designed by two Russian artists and Alkota. The Ideas were generously shared with us by Mr. Abdullah Zaman.
