Arkhangelskye Kozuly. Part 6

Previous part

Gingerbreads which made by old master Zoya Abashkina
(ARKHANGELSKYE KOZULY. History, tradition, modernity. Arkhangelsk, 2006).

Fragility of material does not allow to make a contour of a gingerbread too ornate, therefore a generalized silhouette renders most important in the image. Animals are represented in profile and a person is represented full face. A characteristic detail is the support made of dough, on which all living beings stand. A traditional strip of “ground” fastens the fragile form, makes a gingerbread steady.
