  • Matryoshka doll(Mat-ree-o-ska)
    A matryoshka doll, or babushka doll is a Russian nesting doll which is a set of wooden dolls of increasing size placed one inside the other.
    The first Russian nested doll set was carved in 1890 by VasilyZvyozdochkin 
    Traditionally the outer layer is a woman, dressed in a sarafan, a long and shapeless traditional Russian peasant jumper dress.
    The figures inside may be of either gender; the smallest, innermost doll is typically a baby lathed from a single piece of wood.
    Much of the artistry is in the painting of each doll, which can be very elaborate.
    The dolls often follow a theme, aside from the typical traditional peasant girls, the themes vary, from fairy tale characters to Soviet leaders.
