Your prayer has been answered...a fleet of five angels is coming your way in the form of a Russian nesting doll. The largest has wooden 3-D wings attached, while the inner four have wings painted on their backs. Each angel in this set looks heavenward with striking blue eyes, pleading on your behalf. With roses, a dove of peace, and reverent hand positions these angels bring only good tidings to lift your spirit. Each angel wears a different color, from light pink to various shades of blue – hues that make it a nice knick-knack on a shelf in the nursery. Initialed and dated by the artist, and stamped on the bottom with the Golden Cockerel logo brand, as this angelic matryoshka is fully hand painted in the Golden Cockerel studio in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Production Techniques: Hand Painting. This nesting doll was carved in the Upper Volga region, the Russian center of nesting doll carving. The carved pieces were assembled, doll inside a doll, and then delivered to the Golden Cockerel workshop in St. Petersburg, Russia. Our artists painstakingly hand paint every detail, beginning with backgrounds and moving to the finer elements that require a brush of very select Siberian squirrel hair. It is daunting to think of the time and talent invested in each of the nesting pieces! 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.
