"Fairy Tale" Set of 3 Miniature Nesting Dolls
Russian folk tales are remembered by many Russians from their childhood. They either read the folk tales by themselves or listened to their grannies retelling these stories again and again. Wise oral folk arts are forgotten over the years. Though when we see a well-known illustration or a figurine dedicated to ancient tales, we recall the plot and its characters.
The set depicts the tale about the enormous turnip. The largest figurine is a kind grandfather with dark gray beard. He holds a turnip, that he couldn't pull out alone, and a mouse, his faithful helper. The second nesting doll depicts his elderly wife accompanied by a red cat who also helped to pull the turnip out. The smallest nesting doll shows a granddaughter. She looks tired but happy.
The "Fairy Tale" set is ideal as a kitchen decoration. The hostess will remember to use a vegetable seasoning more often. The nesting dolls can also be presented to friends who spend a lot of time in their garden.
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.
