This is one of Vladik Miagkostoupov’s earliest clubs from 1991, when Vladik was 7 years old. His father, Anatoli, cut down some of his own clubs that he performed with in the Moscow circus in the 1980′s to make this and Vladik’s other early clubs. It has a tapered wooden dowel and a high pressure styrofoam body with reflective mylar decorations. Donated by Anatoli Miagkostoupov.
