Vladimir Denshchikov: Macrame Religious Icons
Vladimir Denshchikov, Ukranian theater actor and teacher, took up an incredible hobby after suffering a stroke in 2007: macrame religious scenes.
With the exception of the faces, each scene is constructed entirely out of millions of knots. He uses no special tools, and even hand makes the thread from linen cloth!
Kudos to Mr. Denshchikov for beautifully mastering such an intricate craft after his health setback. Most people just watch a lot of reality TV while recoverin these days.
