    Russian peasants not only derived emotional and spiritual inspiration from religious icons that occupied esteemed locations in homes and churches, but they also gained a sense of security from other more common objects in their dwellings. Besides their unique function, these objects often had a ceremonial and/or mystical purpose. "Crossing the Threshold: Traditional Folk Art from the Russian Home" is an exhibit of authentic folk art and contemporary replicas by renowned Russian artisans. The artifacts decode the beliefs and culture of Russian peasants through crafts such as woodcarving, embroidery, basketry, metalwork, pottery, toy making and tailoring.
