I love matrushka dolls, both as a toy and as an art form. I love seeing how the painters reduce the complexity of the designs as the dolls get smaller and smaller. I love that they come in so many different styles. And I love the ones that have eeny-weeny baby dolls in the middle. They are just so cute, and I think they are under-rated as a form of art.
I owned just one, a souvenir that a friend brought me from
I was so excited! Moscow! Kremlin! Jews! Matrushka dolls!
