THE BALALAIKA 03/27/2021


We have a balalaika at Old Things and Objects if you're interested in learning it or if you have the skills already! We had a Russian family come in and show us a video of a n**e man playing one by a bear. As I was unable to find that clip on youtube, I found this instead. The musicians within it are amazing, and it gives some facts about it as well.

THE BALALAIKA They do THAT with three strings?!The balalaika often amazes foreigners; listening to the instrument being played, they do not understand how with only three...

Looks like this lovely hippo was carved out of a nice burlwood piece. Hippopotamus is the symbol of rebirth, healing, motherhood, love and protection by mothers, bravery and strength. They often go below the surface into water and so this symbolism was born in a few different cultures. She measures about 7" x by 4" and is a great deal for only $40. The artist's initials are carved at the bottom: looks like Z M.
