Have you seen it? The Death of Stalin movie was released to theaters in March, 2018, but not in Russia, where it was banned. That alone should drive you to the theater for a viewing. Whether you've had a chance to see this absurdist comedy or not, now is the time to get this collectible nesting doll featuring five of the leading roles. This is the very doll that was commissioned by the movie company, and is now being released for sale for a limited time only. Just might make the perfect holiday gift for your favorite movie buff Russophile.
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.
