Computer Mouse in Russian Style
«Computer Mouse in Russian Style»
During shopping in Izmailovo craft market of Russian handcrafts and souvenirs, I and my client from New York were quite excited seeing the computer mouse painted according traditional art schools with pictures of personages from Russian fairy-tales. We spoke with an artist who was selling his works on the market and he told us that it is quite new "modern" idea and these really Russian mice (made in China :-)) but painted here, in Russia, are on demand now as a souvenir or a gift for tourists. Price for this mouse is about 750 rubles ($25) and their customers have even options to bring their own computer mouse or keyboard, so that the artist can paint it within several days (depends on his availability and amount of orders) with a favorite design or picture for a quite reasonable price.
