A native Alaskan family posed for this picture and insisted we include their pet walrus, husky, and snowy owl. This matryoshka doll is a Fuzzynester tm! The parka hoods on both the first and second dolls in this set actually have a fuzzy texture added. And it's added to the base of the first doll as well, as if the eskimo man were standing in snow. These elements make this nesting doll extremely rare. Only could such a doll be made by Golden Cockerel.
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.
