This modern Rooster Girl in Pink caught my eye at the Russian market – a delicate beauty painted with great care. The design concept reminds one of the very first Russian nesting doll ever created, the so-called Rooster Girl, dating to the early 1890’s. She also have various family members in the nesting set, one holding a jug of milk, another hand-in-hand with a younger sibling, etc. The harmony of the happy family radiates from this Russian doll, touching on the essence of what the matryoshka was meant to be. Look at the backs of the dolls—even from the backside this nester is a lovely work of art, a garden of flowers growing out of the babushka scarves, a soothing blend of spring color. The attention to detail is delightful. The soul of the artist is embodied here, and each time you behold this doll, you’ll be glimpsing through a window and seeing the Russian countryside lying before you, abloom with the joyful bubbling of spirit and spring.
