|Russian Nesting Dolls - Religious Themes|
|Russian wooden dolls with nestling smaller dolls are called matryoshka. In provincial Russia before the revolution the name Matryona or Matryosha was a very popular female name. It was derived from the Latin root 'mater' which means 'mother'. The name was associated with the image of a staid and sturdy mother of a big family. Subsequently, it became a symbolic name and was used specially to describe brightly painted wooden dolls made in such a way that they could be taken apart to reveal smaller dolls fitting inside one another.||True to their heritage, every matryoshka doll set that we sell is made in Russia. They are handturned of linden wood, handpainted and laquered several times. Most are signed by the artist.|
