One of the most favorite Russian fairy tales underlies this fabulous set of Matryoshka nesting dolls: “The Tale about the Firebird”. The artist has skillfully chosen the combination of juicy red tones and luxurious aureate hues to make each Matryoshka nesting doll look like a piece of fantastic gemstone.
 
Young Ivan, always deemed a fool by his elder brothers, managed to catch a golden-mane mare, depicted on the second Matryoshka nesting doll, and when the Tsar ordered him to bring a wonderful firebird, Ivan after numerous adventures, was able to fulfill the command, bringing not only the bird, bur also a lovely maiden to the court. The young girl, portrayed on the third Matryoshka nesting doll, refused to be the Tsar’s wife, and the fairy-tale ends with the happy marriage of Ivan and the charming tsar-maiden.
 
This set of Matryoshka nesting dolls is particularly noted for the excuisite doll’s face, her turquoise blue eyes with soft eye-lashes, with a slightly sad and dreamy expression. The roses in the Matryoshka nesting doll’s face with her coral lips symbolize the beauty and innocence of the youth, while the rich shades of goldish firebird’s feathers and the corn-colored hair of the girl add to the overall atmosphere of fabulousness and fairytale.
 
This set of Matryoshka nesting dolls is a fine example of Russian artistry and will make a most wished for Birthday gift or a present for Christmas, New Year or St. Valentines Day.
