Ceramic figurines, symbols of the 2014 Winter Olympics, will be produced by the Semikarakorsk porcelain factory in the Rostov Oblast.

The models of the bear, leopard and hare are currently being agreed upon with the International Olympic Committee. 

All three animals are indigenous to Southern Russia in the Caucasus Mountains near Sochi. By the way, during nationwide mascot design contest that was held in Russia in 2010, Vladimir Putin had said the snow leopard was his favorite.

Meanwhile, masters of this craft decorate dishes with the Sochi Olympics logo.
