Students explore Russian culture and history as they make crafts of symbolic Russian treasures. The first project is an onion dome - a beautiful example of Russian architecture. The onion dome is characteristic of Russian orthodox churches throughout Russia. Next, students make a matryoshka or nested doll using foam. Matryoshka dolls are the most famous traditional souvenir of Russia. The next project is a lacquer box. Russian paper maché boxes are made by pressing layers of paper with resins under great pressure. The box is finished with many coats of lacquer. The last project is a Fabergé style egg with a hidden surprise inside.
