Doll Master Irina Verkhgradskaya from Novosibirsk creates realistic artwork of elderly Russian people in various settings to depict the scenes of their daily routine. Some of the dolls are sad, others — optimistic, but most of them are with a smile, which means there is hope in their hearts. She also creates tiny figures that depict historical and fictional characters.

Verkhgradskaya has been sculpting miniature worlds for thirty years and has a collection of over 1600 figurines. The artist says that she likes to think that her works remind people about their parents and grandparents and motivate them to call their relatives.

No photos? He's had a birthday thus the card, balloon and new socks. Still a little sad, he's so cold he wears a sweater to bed.

I remember doing this in Ukraine. I used to plant those beside the window and they would grow so tall and green!
