Old Vehicle. 2004
Amber, metal; carving, mounting
Author Andrei Kavetskii
Kaliningrad, Russia

“In the “Old Vehicle” the virtuoso technique of execution (how about the carved from amber real car engine!) delights not so much as unusually attractive image of the weather-beaten vehicle, shabby due to worn down Russian roads, with the body deformed in a surreal way, but full of life and energy – "Gonna give a ride!". A unique ability of the master is to provided with mood and character even to objects”.

The author of the artwork “Old Vehicle” was born on 14 July 1963 in settlement Pestiaki, Ivanovo region, the early childhood he spent in Ukraine, and in 1971, with the whole family he moved to Kaliningrad permanently.
