Matreshkas (set of nesting dolls)

Matreshka is a traditional Slavonic souvenir for foreign tourists. This multi-layer work of art is considered to belong to Russian culture only. But this is not exactly the case. The first Russian matreshka was made in Moscow toy atelier by the sample brought from Japan only in the 90-es years of 19th century. This Japanese sample is represented as figurines of Japanese sage Fukurum that were setting into each other. It was bald old man with elongate head. And the first Ukrainian matreshka represented a group of children. Eight dolls imitated children of different age. There is a wide range of various matreshkas made in different styles in the shop “Ukrainian Souvenirs”. You can find traditional Slavonic woman’s figures and even matreshkas with images of famous persons of Russian and Ukrainian politicians.
