Large 10 Piece Storyteller Babushka Doll.
An elder farmer asked his three sons of help to resolve an overnight mystery of disappearing grains from his field. Two older sons fell asleep, but the youngest one Ivan solved the problem by catching the thief, the magical fire bird. The excitement of this scene was accurately displayed on the largest nesting doll of this stunning 10 piece matryoshka set. The smaller dolls feature other important parts of the humpbacked pony folk tale aka Konyok-Gorbunok. The decorative elements are embellished with golden trim throughout the set. Quantities are very limited. Signed by the artist.
