World's Largest Nesting Dolls
How tall is the world’s biggest nesting doll? How many pieces does it have?
A nesting doll is carved from one piece of wood, so its size is limited by the size of the tree and the carver's ability. The largest nesting doll we stock is a blank that 27.5" tall and has 70 pieces. If you have seen a nesting doll with more pieces than this, we invite you to share it here!
To make such a large doll, each piece must be carved paper thin. Such a task requires the skill of a master carver. A matryoshka with so many pieces is truly a rare find in the world of nesting dolls.
The nesting doll pictured above is 12" tall and has 30 pieces. The smallest piece is the size of a grain of rice! The average nesting doll is 6-8 inches tall with 5-7 pieces.
Nesting-Doll Square in Manzhouli, China is home to 100-foot tall matryoshka sculptures. The dolls feature Chinese, Russian, and Mongolian girls. Over 200 figures stand in the square. (Photo www.people.com.cn)
