Description

This Matryoshka Can Be A Thoughtful Gift, Appropriate Seasonal Or Year-Round Decoration, A Special Addition To An Existing Collection - Or All Of The Above! Features: Made Of Linden Wood, Gouache, Lacquer; Hand Painted; 9 Pieces/ 8.5"; Made In Russia. Manufacturing: The Manufacturing Of Russian Nesting Dolls Is A Very Specific Process. These Dolls, Made Famous In The Late 19Th Century, Are Still One Of The Most Classic Of All Russian Art Pieces, Though They Were Meant To Be Toys. The Production Of Them Today Is The Same As It Was Years Ago. Each Of The Dolls Comes From The Same Block Of Wood. The Artisan Cuts The Block Of Wood Into Two Pieces. Then, The Top And The Bottom Pieces Of The Wood Are Cut Off. The Process Continues Until There Is Just A Small Amount Of Wood Left. The Manufacturing Of Russian Nesting Dolls Then Continues With The Carving Of Each Into An Oval Shape. After Carving Them Out, The Pieces Come To Life When Painted Flawlessly.
