Whether you are a professional collector, a connoisseur of Russian arts and history, or just a passer-by looking for some beautiful gift for your loved-ones, this set of Matryoshka Nesting Dolls will never leave your heart unmoved.
These Matryoshka nesting dolls feature a young Russian girl, wearing her best carnival clothes: white Akulina shirt, symbolizing innocence and purity, embroidered with the traditional red ornament, her best kerchief, authentic sarafan and national "yapancha" jacket. Her large sky-blue eyes wide open, an innocent girl with the name Matryosha is looking at this world with delight and expectation of wonder.
The cat, painted in a different posture on each Matryoshka Nesting Doll, gives you a crafty look while leaving one charmed with its golden brown fur. A symbol of wisdom in the national Russian fairy tales, this adorable puss with emerald-green eyes is yet a part of the mystique world of age-old legends and fascinating Grandma’s stories.
The girl carrying a basket full of treats – a traditional motive of hospitality, wellbeing, and caring revealed on many Matryoshka nesting dolls – will bring an atmosphere of love and comfort with a touch of Tsarist Russia style to any home. A wonderful piece of Russian artistry, with its exquisite painting and lacquer finish by artist Muravjeva, this elegant Matryoshka nesting doll makes a perfect gift for your most special person.
Every single piece of artwork is personally selected from the artists that we have worked with for many years to ensure the singularity of representation and uniqueness of the design.
