Churches carved on wooden windows frames (nalichniki) in Navashino city

A stone house with Head of horse and three dome of church carved on ornate wooden windows frames (Nalichniki)

Among Navashino window frames, I have found this very curious one, decorated with church domes. The motif could be common for, say, 19th century, but this window frame was carved back in 1950-1960s. Horses, domes…For some reason, I suspect the Soviet Community hardly approved the carver. Moreover, the house was built of stone and did not need window frames. Yet, they had been carved, put and have remained… Surprising, indeed
