Art works created by Russian master Victor Dubrovsky – a gallery of needle felted animals is absolutely stunning. Sad elephants, fat lambs and pigs like heartwarming children’s cartoon characters. And they all have their own character and its own unique charm. Although eyes, mustache and hooves made of other materials, but the final result always looks very natural. Dubrovsky not only uses natural wool, but also man-made materials – beads, wire base, and other handy tools used to decorate the toys and create elements which he can’t create from felted wool. According to Victor Dubrovsky, he works together with his wife Natasha and brother Grisha. The three of them organized a sale of felted toys on Etsy, and their work has always had a great success.
