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!

The timeless text of the world's most famous Christmas carol is beautifully illustrated on this most original Russian nesting doll. The Silent Night of Christ's birth is depicted on the second doll in the set, but visible through an opening cut in the first doll, which frames the holy scene. This roughly cut opening appears to be the mouth of a cave, which in Byzantine and Eastern Orthodox traditions symbolizes Earth and all of God's creation, and reminds us at once of the womb, and the tomb. The full Nativity set becomes complete when the set of 5 nesting dolls is unnested. Three kings riding camels, following the star of Bethlehem, opens to shepherds hearing the good news. The last doll in the set features a peace dove symbolic of the Holy Spirit. The first stanza of Silent Night is actually printed on the back of the largest doll. This nesting nativity set makes a most original holiday decoration and gift. Certainly a season favorite! Production of this nesting doll involves a combination of hand painting and decoupage reproducing the hand painted originals of Golden Cockerel artist Valya Kirintseva. The "cave" opening is cut by hand with the aid of a heated nichrome wire wood burner.
 
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.
