According to the canons
Nails appeared in domes already during the construction of churches. Only then, in the 16th and 17th centuries, they were made of wood: iron was considered too expensive a material. Now, during restorations, iron nails are used, changing them together with the plowshare every 30–50 years. Laying the plowshare is a whole art, quite the author's. During the restoration, many experienced carpenters work on the bells, but the principle of “one dome – one master” remains unchanged.
Laying goes in a circle, filigree work, because the last detail should fall exactly into place. In a word, you can not believe the legends about the absence of nails in Kizhi churches. But the fact that the masters who work on them are able to build such beauty with almost one ax is pure truth. //fs.tonkosti.ru/sized/f550x700/7e/uq/7euq90xoycws40s0kksc840wc.jpg” media=”(max-width: 549px)”>
