Description

Matryoshkas are the distinctive, brightly painted nesting dolls, which are the characteristic of the Russian folk art. The widely spread opinion that matryoshka is an authentic Russian toy is unfortunately a mere myth. The first Russian matryoshka was turned and painted – according to a sample brought from Japan – in a Moscow toy workshop only in the 90s of the XIXth century. The Japanese original was manufactured with a great sense of humor. It consisted of a number of figurines stacking one inside the other and representing the Japanese Wiseman Fukuruma, a bold-headed old man with an oval-shaped head – the consequence of his deep meditations.
