Description
 
We are pleased to offer this beautiful rendition of the traditional Russian tale of the Gigantic Turnip. Each of the 7 dolls nested inside each other has a different animal pictured that goes along with the story of the old man and woman who needed help to pull this huge vegetable out of the ground! Each doll has a different number of animals which makes this a great counting tool. A matching book is available.

This doll was carved in the Upper Volga region, then delivered to a workshop in St. Petersburg, Russia. The artists first hand paint the background, then apply various detailed elements, such as faces, which we print on a very thin vinyl adhesive. Such elements are reproduced original works of art we make specifically for nesting doll design. It is the artist’s magic brush that blends the two forms of artwork together into a unified piece. Finally, they 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 “Made in Russia”, initialed by the artist, and dated like a true collectible. We can only hope you will give it a good home.
