Craftsman Creates Miniature Masterpiece of Wooden Architecture
Grigory Unishikov

Kursk handicraftsman Grigory Unishikov has created a miniature copy of a Kizhi church constructed 300 years ago.
      It is my first work. I spent three years making it and used about 17 sorts of various materials. It took 25 thousand matches to dress the building, - craftsman explains.
      His most large-scale work is an exact copy of the ancient fortress of Kursk. Following historical documents Grigory Unishikov has reproduced each building of the fortress, including eight towers, one of which was once the first sobering-up station in the city of Kursk.
      Today Grigory Unishikov is the head of a fundamental architecture circle of the Kursk center of folk art Rus. He teaches schoolboys to make miniature replicas of historical buildings of various materials. The artist hopes that his followers will build not only of cardboard and wood, but also of stone, and in real scales, too.
