Icon studies will be of particular interest to those of you who love Russian Fairy Tale painting. The styles of three villages have a foundation of icon painting in their tradition.  This plate design is in an icon style. It is very easy to adapt this design to a smaller plate, of various shape.  The angel border can easily go on any rim, convex or concave, and the central design in the center area. 

This bundle includes the hand carved plate, pattern packet and FREE US shipping.  This spectacular plate is a work of art all on its own.  It is large, 18", turned from basswood and then meticulously hand chip carved.  A true heirloom piece.
