Russian folk art springs from the life and
traditions of the Slavic peoples who have lived
in eastern Europe for thousands of years. Slavic
peasants have absorbed influences from many
diverse cultures from both Europe and Asia.
Russian folk art is very interesting because of
its incorporations of these elements from both
East and West. The Slavs conversion to
Christianity, beginning in the 10th century and
the invasions by Mongols and other from Asia in
the 13th and 14th centuries had lasting effects
on eastern Europe. The lands of Russian were
consolidated by Ivan the Great and his grandson
Ivan the Terrible. Even with this political
unity, the many disparate regions of the Russian
Empire continued to nurture their own local
cultures. In folk art, the bone carvers of the
north, the rug-makers of the south, and the
artists of the Russian steppes have practiced
their traditional art forms in much the same way
as their forebears. The people have carved
painted and decorated almost everything they
made. Each piece was unique. Peasant artists
with their imaginations and remarkable ability to
improvise on age-old themes. Seldom produce
duplicates.

The Slavic love of imagery is reflected in a
number of familiar motifs that were favored by
Russian folk artists. Flowers, leaves, luxuriant
foliage, fruits, animals, especially birds, and
other elements realistic and fantastic were often
combined in arabesques of great beauty.
Geometric motifs were also commonly used
lozenges, rosettes, and stripes as well as
triangles circles, hexagons, and other common
shapes. Human figures were also portrayed, often
on stove tiles, where there was room to tell a
story. The Tree of Life, an age-old
representation of life originating n the earth,
was also a favorite motif. Among the most
popular items to decorate were Easter eggs. Eggs
were closely linked with Eastern Orthodox
religious observances. Folk art representations
included altar screens, portraits of saints, and
architectural motifs on churches and monasteries.
Woodcuts began in the 17th century. Nested
dolls were important folk art toys. Carpets are
important too both for their beauty and color and
for the clear indication of Asia and Byzantine
influence.
