Russian photographer Ivan Khafizov has travelled to 140 villages across Mother Russia to document amazing hand-carved wooden window frames, known as nalichniki.

“This project is a very vast, also it has the ultimate goal: to assemble a collection of window frames from all regions of Russia (and neighboring countries, as there are also at least in Belarus and Kazakhstan) and classify it. Perhaps – as the result will be so called atlas determinant of origin, homeland of carved window frames.”
