Designed by the G.DeBrekht's fine Russian artists, the collection starts with a hand-carving from Russia. From each hand-carved piece a mold is created. The pieces are then cast in resin and hand-painted by highly skilled international artisans trained in the Russian/ G.DeBrekht styles. The painting is usually added in three to nine layers, one on the top another. Using rich color pigments and palettes that duplicate the ones used in Russian art villages, these gifted artists create the magnificent scenes and decorations. Even with small limits of 600 to 1,500, it still takes two to three years to complete each edition of these works of art. Because of their low limitation, these pieces retire from production quickly.
