Looks like there is a cool story behind the Russian Ark… but in any case, it makes for a nice carving !

The political symbolism is quite amusing and muse-full at the same instant .
This must be a copy of the “ARK , “a sculpture by the famous artist LI CHEN ! Great work Oleg !

Thank you friends! Russian Ark floats traditionally nowhere and goes on – until the nurse will not die, or she did not run out of eggs. ))

Oleg , you have delightful sense of humor to go along with your great carvings . Your work is
often mysterious , even when it’s symbolism seems , at first , simple . Just delightful . My hat is
off to Li Chen , your prankster alter ego !
