In the image above, the tree stump is being examined by a grasshopper and an ant, both made from wood.
The house where Galina and Gennady live (Galina's children have since left the house, partly gone back to Perm) has decorations, sometimes colorful, of carvings and wooden ornaments, as well as a frescoe with two swans.
There is a homemade weather vane on the house. The wooden bench in front of the house has decorative carvings, again including two white swans facing each other.
