Matryoshka 5 Piece Russian Nesting Babushka Dolls
Matryoshka 5 Piece Nesting Dolls
Approx height 18cm by 10cm Diameter
From Russia with love...
The wooden Matryoshka doll has symbolised Russian folk art since the end of the 19th century.
The name Matryoshka takes its origin from the Latin “mater”, meaning mother. To this day the Matryoshka doll remains a symbol of motherhood.
The wooden dolls are made in several regions around Moscow, with the area of Sergiev Posad being the traditional centre for doll painting in Russia.
Each doll is handcrafted from Lime wood, which is seasoned for at least 3 to 4 years before being hand turned and painted by Artists, making each doll a unique work of art.
The dolls are exquisitely painted in the finest details, either in a traditional flower style or with scenes that depict folklore, architecture or fairy tales.
