Warning: Nesting dolls with small parts present a choking hazard. The primary safety concern with nesting dolls is that many of them contain small parts that might cause an infant to choke. Therefore, very few nesting dolls are appropriate for children 3 years of age, or younger. Please do not let your children put nesting dolls into their mouths!

Ever wonder what living under Soviet communism did to the Russian soul? Well here is a nesting doll that depicts the transformation as we at Golden Cockerel imagine it. The innermost piece is a happy, traditional, innocent matryoshka girl. The middle "maiden" is a serious Soviet woman bearing a hammer and sickle. Consternation on her brow reveals the honeymoon with utopian dreams is over. Finally, the largest doll is a vampire matryoshka, symbolic of the Soviet state. Wouldn't George Orwell approve? The doll reads "Museum of Communism" on the back, as the concept for this Russian doll was derived from a poster advertising the Museum of Communism in Prague, Czech Republic. Not the first time, and certainly won't be the last time, Matryoshka is used as a vehicle of political satire. We only hope that Vladimir Putin pays attention and the past does not repeat itself so quickly. As a nesting doll collector, I am thrilled to have this Russian doll in my matreshka nesting doll collection.
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.
