Custom Matryoshka-Style Urn
One of our customers chose to commission a matryoshka urn to hold the ashes of his beloved Russian wife, Connie, a longtime lover of Russian nesting dolls. We custom carved a huge Russian doll and left it hollow, to serve as a nesting doll urn. From a photograph, our artist Anna Gavrilova created a beautiful, peaceful rendering of Connie. The matryoshka doll’s cloak depicts a nighttime winter scene. Our customer was quite pleased with the result and will remember his “living doll” each time he looks at the matryoshka urn.
We can create a custom matryoshka urn for you too. We will strive to honor your loved one’s memory to your exact specifications. If you can dream it up, we can create it. The urn pictured above was 18” tall and cost $750. A smaller, less expensive urn can be produced as well. Feel free to contact us for a quote.
