Woodcarver Alexander Penteshin
Russian Woodcarver Alexander Penteshin is also a painter and restorer from Pushkino, Moscow region. He creates carved furniture and pictures using various styles and techniques. Alexander Penteshin sticks lime bars together leaving bark on the side ones. It gives the impression that a picture is entirely carved out of a tree trunk. Pictures executed in this way are all unique as the traces of knots never repeat themselves…
August 1st – day of St. Seraphim of Sarov. This is one of our favorite saints. Alexander Penteshin wanted to show how different can be his carved paintings. The painting depicts a scene from the life of St. Seraphim of Sarov. When the saint lived in the forest, a bear came to him and Seraphim fed him with bread.
