A sample of modern carving from Kalyazin

A modern nalichnik in Kalyazin

Running opinion on modern window frames is that they are rather few and those existing miss any style or an individual manner. I totally agree they are few but I would not say they lack phantasy; no, they are much more intricate as compared to those made in the late XX century. Carvers may correct me, but, being an outsider, I can see they are trying to do their best to expose the wood: use only varnish and not paint; superimpose darker wooden elements over lighter ones, the method never used before. But it is strange that will all the modern tools at hand (especially those for saw-through carving), making of window frames is still rather an expensive business.

P.S. This sample of modern carving is from Kalyazin, Tver Oblast
