Russia welcomes the Obama family to the White House with this nesting doll. President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle, daughters Malia and Sasha, and the Statue of Liberty all nest together. Barack Obama holds the American flag and gives a thumbs-up. Turn him over to find his entire Inauguration Day speech written on the back! Michelle is dressed in her yellow Inauguration Day dress. Malia wears a button that reads "YES WE CAN!" and Sasha wears a button that reads "YES WE WILL!" The perfect memento of this time of change. The nesting doll is hand painted and decoupaged at the Golden Cockerel workshop in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Production Techniques: Hand Painting/ Decoupage. This doll was carved in the Upper Volga region, 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 quality, initialed by the artist, and dated like a true collectible. We can only hope you will give it a good home.
