The Nicholas II Family


“Art that stands the test of time.”

At the request of our good friends in St. Petersburg, Russia, Chase Winfield has created the “First of its kind” -- a sculptured collection of the last Tsar Nicholas II and Tsarina Alexandra with their five children: daughters, Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia and son Alexis,. To honor this beloved family, Chase has created each life-sized sculpture using a beautiful baroque style with an antique ivory finish and gold leaf design (see below). This project is a gift of love from the U.S.A. to the world, to our friends the Russia People.



We welcome your contributions

This is the only world wide collection of the Last Ruling Romanov family

Sculptures and we need your contributions for their trip to Russia and the tour of

Russia once they arrive.  All donations are appreciated.

 CCI’s Mission

 The Center for Citizen Initiatives
is a not-for-profit organization
whose mission it is to inspire and empower ordinary citizens
to assume extraordinary roles
to create irreversible human links between
the citizens of Russia and the United States.F

Our joint programs assist citizens to work together to develop
free markets, democratic institutions, private agriculture, safe environments
and sustainable non-profit sectors across Russia.

 CCI relies on personal involvement and volunteerism to implement all programs,
and we serve as a testing ground to improve and refine
the delivery of low-cost foreign assistance at grassroots levels in both countries.

 CCI’s work is based on a profound faith in the capability of ordinary citizens to make change
in their individual lives, local communities, countries and in global politics.
 It is our belief that future geopolitics, indeed the well being of the world,
will depend on the relationships between our great nations.

Therefore, it is imperative that we, as intelligent and concerned citizens,
forge a vast web of human relations and economic partnerships
which will withstand and influence the vacillating winds of political change in the future.

 To the above task, we at CCI commit ourselves.

The Last Tsar and Tsarina of Russia.

The greatest love at the start of the Twentieth Century.
