"Animals" Set of 3 Miniature Nesting Dolls
Although nesting dolls mainly depict young Russian girls, artists sometimes pay attention to animals too. The "Animals" set, consisting of three dolls, represents three gray-green rats dressed in Christmas costumes.
The largest rat wears green mittens and holds vintage skates. The second nesting doll is dressed in the same way. It decided to check on its health and strength in freezing weather with a cold ice cream in a waffle cup. The smallest rat demonstrates full readiness to celebrate a New Year and holds a lit sparkler in its right mitten.
Cheerful rats can be purchased to decorate a room in which you plan to celebrate a New Year. They can be presented to children or be bought for friends who have invited you to spend a new year's eve together.
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.
