Paper Card Model Kit Saint Basil's Cathedral (The Cathedral of Intercession of Theotokos on the Moat).

Building instruction in English and/or Russian.
The scale for this cardboard kit was chosen specially for convenience. It is fine for the children. The small details are not too small, and large - not too large.
The principle of splicing the details is covered by the patents. All the splices are calculated the way that in case of correct constructing the kit, it is possible to play with the toy like it was factory done. All the model kits of “Umbum” are done on the base of the pictures of the originals. There are special modern glossy lacquers used in the decoration. The process of assembling this toy is highly developing the spatial abilities and hands motility, teaching how to solve the problem with the help of imagination.

The Cathedral of Intercession of Theotokos on the Moat, popularly known as Saint Basil's Cathedral, is a Russian Orthodox cathedral erected on the Red Square in Moscow in 1555–1561. Built on the order of Ivan IV of Russia to commemorate the capture of Kazan and Astrakhan, it marks the geometric center of the city and the hub of its growth since the 14th century. It was the tallest building of Moscow until the completion of the Ivan the Great Bell Tower in 1600.
The original building, known as "Trinity Church" and later "Trinity Cathedral", contained eight side churches arranged around the ninth, central church of Intercession; the tenth church was erected in 1588 over the grave of venerated local Fool Vasily (Basil). In the 16th and the 17th centuries the cathedral, perceived as the earthly symbol of the Heavenly City, was popularly known as the "Jerusalem" and served as an allegory of the Jerusalem Temple in the annual Palm Sunday parade attended by the Patriarch of Moscow and the tsar.
The building's design, shaped as a flame of a bonfire rising into the sky, has no analogues in Russian architecture: "It is like no other Russian building. Nothing similar can be found in the entire millennium of Byzantine tradition from the fifth to fifteenth century... a strangeness that astonishes by its unexpectedness, complexity and dazzling interleaving of the manifold details of its design." The cathedral foreshadowed the climax of Russian national architecture in the 17th century but has never been reproduced directly.
The cathedral has operated as a division of the State Historical Museum since 1928. It was completely secularized in 1929 and, as of 2009, remains a federal property of the Russian Federation. The cathedral has been part of the Moscow Kremlin and Red Square UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990.
