These dolls are highly collectible pieces. That is why they are put in a separate group of Russian nesting dolls. Scenes from Bible, especially the Birth of Jesus, coming of the angel guardians are very close to the hearts of Russians. The artists love to touch this sacred knowledge with their brushes and reflect the depth of the Orthodox religion and doctrine. You can see lacquered and painted nesting dolls, as well as the ones which are burned on the wood. Every single piece is an individual authentic creation of the Russian artists.
