St. Basil's Cathedral Music Box

20000327

Among Russia's many churches, the most iconic is St. Basil's, the colorful cathedral that adorns Red Square in the Moscow kremlin. The multi-domed structure actually includes 10 churches – a central Cathedral of the Protection and eight surrounding churches. A 10th church was later added in honor of St. Basil the Fool-for-Christ.

This wooden music box is modeled after the famous cathedral. The figure of the church spins while it plays a traditional Russian folk melody!

Each model is handmade of wood and painted in Russia. The bottom is decorated with “Khokloma” designs – red, black, and gold floral with berries. This style, which traditionally adorns wooden bowls, platters, and spoons, is beloved by Russians and is often used as holiday ware.

Since each one is individually hand made, the artwork may vary.

Size (including the cross): 8" x 4.5"
