Ivan Vasilevich weaves a basket out of willow twigs in the village of Garenichi
Ivan Vasilevich, 60, weaves a basket out of willow twigs in the village of Garenichi, some 110 km (68 miles) east of Minsk, December 14, 2011. Vasilevich used to work at a farm, often wearing rubber boots, and had his legs freeze over time. He then had to have them amputated 13 years ago after gangrene set in, and now earns money by weaving baskets. He weaves up to 25 baskets a month and sells them at a local market at a price of $2.50. Ivan has a disability pension of $140 a month, so the income he garners from weaving baskets is a significant amount for his family to subsist.
