Looking for the perfect peacock gift? Consider this feast for the eyes: a splendid strutting peacock unfolds his feathers on a nesting doll. Open up the largest India blue peacock doll to find various other peacocks, including a white peacock doll. Adorning this Russian nesting doll featuring one of the world's most spectacular birds is one of the world's most celebrated flowers, the orchid. As you turn the doll around you'll find a magical orchid garden. Get lost in this oriental dream of a doll! Made at the Golden Cockerel workshop in St. Petersburg, Russia, this doll is another Golden Cockerel original.
Production Techniques: Hand Painting/ Decoupage. This nesting doll was carved in the Upper Volga region, the Russian center of nesting doll carving. The carved pieced were assembled, doll inside a doll, then delivered to the Golden Cockerel workshop in St. Petersburg, Russia. Our 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 we 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 Golden Cockerel’s “Made in Russia” mark of nesting doll quality, initialed by the artist, and dated like a true collectible. We can only hope you will give it a good home.
