Whether you have already visited Russia or not, you have probably already seen matriochkas, these nesting dolls with friendly faces and bright colors. These dolls made of wood have indeed become one of the major emblems of Russian craftsmanship. They are recognizable by their cylindrical shape with simple lines. A woman's face with rosy cheeks, and a dress painted with refined details characterize the traditional matryoshka.
Created at the end of the 19th century, the matriochkas have continued to evolve, and these successive evolutions have been born of the original Russian dolls. This type of nesting dolls takes the main features of the classic matryoshka, with a simple shape and a succession of smaller dolls that fit into each other. But their specificity lies in the details, which can be both in form and in patterns.
Among the original large Russian dolls, you will find creations around a theme: for example Christmas or even the birth of Jesus. You can also find Russian dolls based on replicas of paintings by known painters, from Malevich to Klimt. For more playful Russian dolls, you can opt for creations that represent various characters, such as folk tales characters for example. All you have to do is to choose from the Russian Treasures website, either for you or to offer on a special occasion!
