Vanitas Building Blocks by Raduga Grez
The sculptural and art-inspired Vanitas building blocks set is hand-made by Raduga Grez in Russia. Part of their Flower collection, this toy reminds us of classic still-life paintings by artists like Cézanne, Gaugin and Monet. Raduga Grez creates all their toys with the aim of being meaningful, and we think that the Vanitas blocks will serve as perfect inspiration for budding artists.
Raduga Grez is a family-run company that makes solid wood toys to 'celebrate creativity'. We envision their captivating toys being passed from one generation to another, loved by children and adults alike. Each toy is painted using non-toxic water-based paint and the natural grain and texture of each piece of wood is purposely preserved. Raduga Grez's carpenters have been making matryoshka dolls for three generations and their process remains very traditional. The wood used to make the toys is cut from whole round logs and the toys are painted and packaged in the same small workshop.
This set of ten beautifully-colored objects makes the perfect toy for imaginative play or can be used as part of a decorative display. The set comes in a drawstring bag.
Approximately 11 x 9 x 3.5 inches
