Matryoshka: The Russian Nesting Doll
Presented by Museum of Russian Icons
May 18 - July 20, 2013
The new exhibition Matryoshka: The Russian Nesting Doll, features 83 Matryoshka sets of lavishly painted wooden nesting dolls of decreasing size placed one inside the other. Whether depicting ancient legends, religious themes, or political caricatures, Matryoshkas can reveal a subtle narrative—as one bell-shaped doll opens to reveal the next one inside—about the history of Russia.
The exhibit is family friendly and will have a "play zone" for our younger visitors to enjoy the exhibtion at their own pace.
