Russian Taiga is a secluded Karmarchaga village with one very special exhibit – a story book house completely covered in colored bottle caps. Its owner has kept herself busy collecting bottle caps assiduously over the years. When she has hit the magical number of 30,000, she hammered them all on the exterior walls of her house. And not in any haphazard fashion but carefully arranged in the most aesthetically pleasing of traditional patterns and animal portrayals.
