Aman Atabaev (1925-1986)
Aman Atabaev continued to develop the best traditions of Karakalpak folk art. His knowledge in the rich folk art stimulated him to make wood carving. All his works, including often everyday life objects, decorated with carving, have an ornamental character. His carved doors decorated with folklore motifs, sculptural portraits and wooden masks reveal AtabaevвЂ™s rich imagination, his artistic skills and variety of his artistic technique.
