available exclusively at Russian Treasure store.
Model - [M5smSymHen]
Number of dolls: 5
This delightful set of Matryoshka nesting dolls, personally selected from the artists that we have worked with for many years, conveys the initial and most significant concept of this unique handicraft. Matryoshka nesting dolls are closely connected with the notion of motherhood (as the root of Matryoshka –mater - means "mother") and fertility.
This set of Matryoshka nesting dolls consists of five wooden dolls, with the smallest one holding an egg – the symbol of the beginning of life, the three Matryoshka nesting dolls in the middle tending the chickens in the nest, and the biggest Matryoshka nesting doll with mother-hen in her arms. The eternal circle of life, communicated by the artist in this venerable motive, is also the most meaningful part of any culture in all places around the world.
These Matryoshka nesting dolls are painted with an eye to the Russian folk style: each Matryoshka nesting doll wears a traditional red "yapancha" jacket matching her crimson kokoshnik – a color of excellence, decorated with golden accents and sapphire rim to emphasize Matryoshka nesting doll's azure eyes. The amber hues of the chickens and the tender roses in each Matryoshka nesting doll's cheeks breathe with unusual tenderness and affection.
Consider this set of Matryoshka nesting dolls as a unique Valentine's or birthday gift to express your most intimate feelings.
