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!

Originally the totem pole was a carved wooden pillar produced by northwestern Native Americans to indicate tribal family, group, or clan. Inspired by Native American art, we carved a nesting doll unusually tall and slim, and added eagle wings to resemble the shape of the actual totem poles. This Totem Pole Nesting Doll opens to reveal artistically rendered totem pole animals that traditionally represented particular totem pole meanings. For instance, bears are viewed as a symbol of caring and the wolf is believed to be a healer. Discover the totem symbols on this unique nesting matryoshka and create your own, personal meanings. There are more beautiful, hand painted Native American nesters for you to find in our Native American and Alaska 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.
