Super 30-piece Russian Art Matryoshka "Moscow". A tour-de-force "Super Matryoshka" painted in 1995. Each doll represents a view of Old Moscow, the first being the most recognizable structure in all of Russia! St. Basil's Cathedral, like the Eiffel Tower is to Paris, is synonymous with Russia. Each doll has a painting, for example, the Old Muscovy Kremlin wooden fortress, ancient wood churches, the cupolas of the grand stone cathedrals in the Kremlin, the Moskva River, and small churches in the environs. 13" down to ½", 30 nest. Signed by the artist (Saraeva) and dated 1995. It took the artist 2 months to paint this doll set. The lathe operator also did fine work and the wood was cured for over two years before painting could commence. We have only one. Minor condition note: production flaw on the 13th doll, otherwise near fine. All the pieces are hand painted.
