2014 Winter Olympics - Opening Ceremony - Alan Cook


NBC voice referred to it as Candyland. No, it was inspired by folk art figures from Dymkova. So here are views that might inspire an approach for a puppet show design based on Dymkova clay figures.

In the 5th photo of figurines, right side, is a goat whistle made of clay, which I bought from a Vancouver B C antique store, which got it from a Canadian who had worked for an embassy or consulate in the USSR before 1962>

The paint has a way of flaking off. I wish I had known that earlier...maybe a spray coat of clear Krylon would have helped maintain the paint.

OTHER PHOTOS from last night. Animals, church domes, etc. all decorated in Dymkova style. Definitely nothing to do with candy. When the domes rose into the air, I immediately thought of Tony Sarg balloon figures for Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parades.
