Toys and small ceramics

Small plastics in Uzbek stoneware are represented by traditional toys made in the shape of fantastic zoomorphic statuettes, and by genre souvenirs, which enjoy wide popularity. The earthenware toys are unforgettable. No matter whether they are the traditional crimson-yellow whistles made by Khamro Rakhimova from the village of Uba, or the bright ethnographic, and full of lyric humour small pieces of sculpture - the works of A.Mukhtarov of Samarkand - in each of them one senses taste of the Uzbeks for bright gay decoration.
