"Annie with Kittens" Set of 5 Miniature Nesting Dolls
The "Annie with Kittens" set consists of five nesting dolls depicting Russian girls named Anya, taking care of a litter of kittens. The biggest Anya wears a woolen hat of a ripe orange color and two pink ribbons with blue polka dots. She holds two little kittens of gray and red colors.
The second Anya got dressed in bright red jumpers, matching her fiery red hair. She has a cat of a similar color, with a calm, happy, almost philosophical expression on its snout. The third Annie in blue holds a beige cat, that helps the girl to hold her big red-green ball. The fourth Anya is dressed in pink. Her cat is orange with a white breast.
The smallest Anya has a purple scarf with white dots. A red black-striped kitten sits at her feet. Wooden Anyas can be presented to cat lovers or children as an alternative to a real cat.
Through the years, nesting dolls have evolved to become a form of amazing folk art and a metaphorical representation of various themes and motifs in Russian history and culture. These wooden beauties became a part of the Russian national heritage, a symbol of motherhood and fertility of Mother Nature.
The well-known matryoshka is actually a set of dolls. Each doll presents a wooden figure which can be pulled apart to reveal a smaller figure of the same sort inside, which has, in turn, another figure inside, and so on. The smallest innermost doll is single-part. The number of nested figurines varies.
Nesting dolls often depict traditional cheerful girls in colorful dresses and bright scarf or shawls, families of all sorts, characters of Russian folk tales, singers and actors, popular Soviet and Russian political leaders. Painting motives bedazzle in their diversity and continue to comprise more and more new notions.
