Icon cases from Vetka: the Garden of Eden

Wood carver from Vetka are known far beyond our country. When I first saw this openwork (icon case), I was impressed. And touch it. I could not believe it - this is made from wood! That's incredible!

Just look at the images below and you will agree with me.

Finer branches, graceful leaves, delicate flowers. This is a characteristic feature of the wood carver from the Belarusian town Vetka.These icon cases are called "gardens" - by analogy with the Garden of Eden.
