Igor Savitsky's Uzbekistan Museum

The creation of the following pot was inspired by a documentary on Savitsky's attempts to paint the desert's colors around the Nukus area in the Republic of Karakalpakstan. 
Evidently, after being criticized by a famous Soviet painter/artist, Savitsky gave up his career and established a museum in Nukus which focused on contemporary Russian art and also contained ancient Russian cultural artifacts.

This "desert sands" pot stands 9 n' 1/4 inches tall and is 5 inches wide.

Happy Uzbekistan days, folks
