In the animal world, or a museum of one man
• The animal or a museum one man in the world
Village Russkinskaya that in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District of Russia is not only known by conducting a fairly large-scale celebration of the day of the hunter, fisherman and herder, but also quite unusual and interesting museum. It is called the "Museum of Man and Nature".
It is interesting in this museum is that it gathers almost all kinds of animals and birds living in Ugra. Over three hundred stuffed animals, birds and even fish have filled everything the space of two large halls. They are on the walls, on the ceiling, on the floor; not a single representative of each type, and the whole flock or family. To get between their rows, sometimes you have to turn sideways.
And in this unusual museum that he established his hands actually one person. Alexander Pavlovich Yadroshnikov more than forty years of taxidermy - manufacturer of stuffed animals and birds, which were the main exhibits of the museum.
The second unusual fact is that, according to Alexander Pavlovich, none of the animals for the museum was not killed specifically - all "body" bring game wardens: some animals died by a tragic accident - for example, a huge brown bear hunters accidentally awakened in winter den, so I had to shoot him. Other animals shot down on the road, and Yadroshnikovu do not just have to gather them often to get zoologically authentic scarecrow.
Affects also the fact that on both Yadroshnikova hands are not the first two phalanges - their amputated long ago, after the frostbite. An ordinary man and a mug could not properly hold, and Alexander Pavlovich masterfully makes stuffed animals. And very touching about them says.
He says that in this way wants to give a second life to dead animals.
This museum animals not placed behind the single exhibits signs written with dry tongue. Here, composition, scenes from the life of the taiga animals and even scenes from Russian folk tales

The creator Russkinskoye museum of nature and man - a man of truly extraordinary. Yadroshnikov came to Russkinskaya distribution to work hunters, and became the honored worker of culture of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug. Hunt and their culture became interested in not as a specialist, but as a beginner in his hitherto unknown ethnic environment. In 1997, Hungary had already created Khanty architectural complex of the museum under the open sky Gecheysh. Yadroshnikova works were part of the exhibition, representing the culture of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug in the exhibition in Strasbourg.
Next, a closer look at the exhibits. The author of these scarecrows did their best to authentically convey the habits, characteristics, even the characters of some species

Yes, it is possible to produce some stuffed author a little "too far" from the color schemes (eyes, gums, tongue), but, nevertheless, in my opinion, the animals look very vivid and realistic and did not resemble the usual dead dust stuffed many museums
Neuporotye foxes. Employees of the museum, of course, aware of the new top-end character in today's youth culture. They are suitable for this with humor, they said no uporotyh fox in the museum's collection no. They also assured that animals and other uporotyh here too there :)
