A nalichnik with angel and high relief

Traditional Russian nalichnik (ornated wooden windows frames)

What is good about window frames is that you never know what tomorrow has in stock for you.
For example: in Vladimir, I found a unique high relief window frame.

It is even more unexpected because Vladimir Oblast has no 3D-carved window frames. And I cannot recall any other place where angel figures are used as a part of decoration. Still, the question remains open: is it a wood carving, or a clay (plaster) patch similar to the ones used before in decoration of stone houses.
