Russian nesting doll (stacking doll) or Matryoshka doll is a set of dolls decreasing in sizes placed one inside another. The word “mah-tr-o-sh-kah” is related to the old Russian word mat, meaning “mother“.
The first Russian Matryoshka nested doll set was carved in 1890 by Vasily Zvyozdochkin from a design by Sergey Malyutin, who was a folk crafts painter in the Abramtsevo estate of Savva Mamontov, a Russian industrialist and patron of arts.
