Traditional Matryoshka Nested Doll Making: From Russia to New Hampshire

Presenter: Marina Forbes

Marina Forbes shares many examples of Matroyshka nested dolls, including examples of her own work and from her extensive collection, as she examines the rich folk tradition and symbolism of the dolls' appearance. She explores the link between doll making and other traditional Russian art forms. There will be a quick stop at the 1900 World's Fair in Paris that made Russian nested dolls and Faberge eggs famous, followed by an illustrated tour of a working doll-making factory in rural Russia.
