Related To The Russian Matryoshka (матрёшка) Doll Refers To A Set Of Wooden Dolls Of Decreasing Size Placed One Inside The Other. The First Russian Nested Matryoshka Doll Set Was Carved In 1890 By Russian Vasily Zvyozdochkin From A Design By Sergey Malyutin, Who Was A Folk Crafts Painter At Abramtsevo.

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, Inner-Most Doll Is Typically A Baby Turned 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 Traditional Peasant Girls, The Themes Vary, From Fairy Tale Characters To Soviet Leaders.
