Looking to get your money's worth on a unique calendar? If so, our Calendar Matryoshka is just the thing for you! Don't waste your money on a calendar that will just get thrown out at the end of the year! See just a beautiful nesting doll? Look closer! The three dolls in this set indicate the day, the month, and the year. Turn the top half of each doll so that the aging woman's finger indicates where you stand in time. The calendar element adds a whole new twist to what a nesting doll can be. Enjoy her year round, and for years! There are three pieces to this nesting doll – one doll for the day, one for the month, and one for the year. The day doll is a baby, the month a young woman, and the year an old lady. This unique Russian calendar would make a great stocking stuffer.
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.
