Made at the Golden Cockerel workshop in the style of the Northern Dvina folk art, this brightly colored doll reminds one of the age-old lubok patterns of pre-literary Russia. This style of artwork is definitive of a region along the Northern Dvina River. There, the artisans decorate all sorts of household vessels, plates, etc., with this fanciful floral pattern dominated by rich teals, oranges, reds, and yellows, always on a white background. It is a dream of a matyroshka: winter’s fields are covered with a blanket of snow, when suddenly spring breaks forth with a fury of longed-for flowers and colors, like carnival or fireworks. oranges, reds, and yellows, always on a white background. Initialed and dated by the artist, and stamped with the Golden Cockerel logo on the bottom.
