Description
 
Babushka lives on her own in a cottage where everything is as neat as a pin. But she is so busy cleaning and polishing that she hardly notices the miraculous events going on around her. Then a mysterious dream leads her to put her daily worries aside and set out to find a special baby. On her journey, she learns that the more you give away in love, the more you will receive. Readers of all ages and beliefs will be charmed and captivated by this poignant Russian folk tale, a most interesting nativity story. Children young and old will adore Sophie Fatus's beautiful folk-art illustrations, which our artists have carried onto a charming nesting doll so that the story can be opened up, doll by doll.

Production Techniques: Hand Painting. This doll was carved in the Upper Volga region, and then delivered to the Golden Cockerel workshop in St. Petersburg, Russia. Our artists painstakingly hand paint every detail, beginning with backgrounds and moving to the finer elements that require a brush of very select Siberian squirrel hair. It is daunting to think of the time and talent invested in each of the nesting pieces! Finally we baptize each doll in multiple layers of non-toxic water-based lacquer to make a marvelous matryoshka that will delight children and collectors. The bottom of the largest doll gets stamped with Golden Cockerel’s “Made in Russia” mark of quality, initialed by the artist, and dated like a true collectible. We can only hope you will give it a good home.
