"Family" Set of 5 Miniature Nesting Dolls
The "Family" set consists of five dolls dedicated to village life, music and traditional costumes that are still worn in Russian villages. The largest matryoshka has the height of 19 centimeters (7.4 inches) depicting a girl in a bright red scarf shawl, a blue dress and a light orange shirt with wide sleeves decorated with embroidery. The girl has red hair, brown eyes and rosy cheeks. She holds a three-stringed balalaika.
Her husband, the accordion player, wears a blue cap decorated with two red flowers, a red shirt and black pants. He has a Russian accordion, without which no village wedding is held. The eldest daughter is the third largest matryoshka doll wearing a red scarf shawl and a green dress. She holds a small wooden gusli that is a kind of a harp. The fourth matryoshka depicts a blonde son who is also the part of the quartet. He has a small nicely decorated horn in his hand. The smallest nesting doll is the youngest daughter. She has not learned to play music yet, so she holds a red flower.
The family of village musicians can be presented to a friend who has many musical instruments. The set can also be used to decorate your own piano.
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.
