"Santa Claus" Set of 5 Miniature Nesting Dolls
Russian craftsmen made a very special set named "Santa Claus" for those who prefer to celebrate western Christmas.
Santa Claus performs almost the same functions as Russian Father Frost. He travels in a magical sleigh pulled by reindeer and brings gifts to children by placing them in a specially prepared children's socks.
The largest nesting doll depicts Santa Claus dressed in a red coat and a winter hat. He holds a purple sack full of gifts. A yellow stag stands next to him.
The second and third nesting dolls are devoted to assistants of Santa Claus. These are young girls also dressed in red coats. The fourth nesting doll depicts a snowman dressed in a purple cap and wrapped in a blue shawl. The smallest figurine is a cuckoo clock. Its striking will remind you about Christmas.
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.
