Snowmaiden, one of the most popular and beloved Russian fairy-tale personage is featured on this Russian Matryoshka Nesting Dolls set. Snowmaiden was described in numerous Russian folk tales, operas and poems. There are hundreds of assumptions of her origin. But one fact remains the same – Snowmaiden is a girl, made of snow. No wonder, that she is associated with winter. That’s why you can see her standing on the white downy snow, while sophisticated snowflakes go down on her beautiful kerchief.
Snowmaiden is depicted on these Russian Matryoshka Nesting Dolls together with Russian forest inhabitants – fox and hear. Each Babushka doll has a fir-tree, symbol of frosty winter and Christmas holidays. The fir-trees are decorated with traditional red, yellow and cyan baubles, and lovely snow-like beads. These Christmas ornaments are widely used among Russian families.
Another no less important symbol of Russian winter, shown on Russian Matryoshka Nesting Dolls set is Robin bird. According to Bible legend, Robin bird selflessly tore needles of crown of thorns from the head of Jesus, and one blood drop got sank on his breast, and colored it in red. Robin bird is considered to be a symbolic bird.
