"Russians build houses from things they have available at hand. Their skills and sense of beauty are admired all over the world," says photographer Fyodor Savintsev.

Today Russian ballet is a world-famous brand. It was Anna Pavlova, a famous Russian ballerina, who made it this way more than a hundred years ago. She was the one who suggested Sergei Diaghilev to include ballet performances in Russian Seasons. And soon the whole world was at Pavlova's feet. February 12 marks the 140th anniversary of the birth of this outstanding woman, whose name is remembered and whose talent is still admired all over the world.
