This is a gorgeous piece of art! Brilliantly carved of linden wood, this Russian mother tenderly holds her swaddled child, who sleeps peacefully. The hand painting is delightfully done with many embellishments and such attention to detail that it is clear the artist took great pride in her work. There are glitter accents that highlight the decorative peasant dress and baby quilt, which are peppered with snow. Signed by K. Slavina. This is a piece I would gladly take home to my mantel. You'll treasure it. 9" tall.
