Exclusive Quality 7 Piece Matryoshka Doll.
Many famous Russian classical paintings and works of art feature scenes similar to the Russian circle dance featured on these nesting dolls. On the largest doll, a young man with a flute is surrounded by beautiful young Russian girls who joined the summer party; they are performing a khorovod (circle) dance. In the background you can see a beautiful Russian Orthodox Church in classical blue and white. The scenes are realistic. The scene featuring Russians dressed in bright sarafan clothes and kokoshnik (head cover), gives a glimpse of reality from the Russian countryside a century ago. This exclusive quality set was hand painted in the best Russian tradition and it stands about 8" tall. The dolls feature a great combination of warm summer colors blended with shimmering paints symbolizing sunshine. The color scheme and quality make this babushka doll a very special one-of-a-kind gift. Gorgeous flower blooms on the back are outlined with embellished golden trim.
Patterns and design details may vary slightly due to the fact that every set is hand painted and is one-of-a-kind. This doll is signed in Cyrillic on the bottom by the artist. Only 1 in stock.
