Friday object lesson #23: Music box

Last week’s object came from Sergeev Posad: this week’s is something I bought at another Russian religious centre, Suzdal, in 2011 – a tiny music box, which plays an extract from The Nutcracker. Suzdal, which is a couple of hours outside of Moscow, is not the easiest place to get to for the average tourist, but is well worth the visit.
