An idea for a nesting doll that's sure to take off! This is a matryoshka unlike any other. Inside this charming blue airplane nest 2 crew members. Printed on the airplane's side is the word "MIR" which is Russian for "peace" and "world." You might think of it as our World Peace Airlines, straight from Russia. Notice how the jets on the wings are made of smaller nesting dolls--cool! A great gift idea for kids big and small, this is a Golden Cockerel exclusive!
Production Techniques: Hand Painting. This doll was carved in the Upper Volga region, 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 quality, initialed by the artist, and dated like a true collectible. We can only hope you will give it a good home.
