When making matryoshkas we use wood of alder, aspen and linden. Timber that is intended for the manufacture of dolls, usually is cut down in early spring, purified from the bark, leaving in some places of the log rings of bark to prevent during drying cracking of the wood. Prepared in this way the logs are stacked in piles, between them there is a gap for air flow. Usually timber is kept in the open air for several years to bring it up to a certain condition, avoiding not proper drying. Only an experienced master can determine the readiness of the material. Ready to process the logs are sawn into billets for future dolls. The doll blank overcomes though up to 15 operations in the hands of a turner before becoming a finished doll. The dolls are polished to a smooth finish and are now ready for the artist to paint. The artist uses special fine brushes made of sable or squirrel’s hair and water-based paint. The final step is applying lacquer to give the dolls a beautiful, lasting finish.
Nesting doll is a huge artistic event which requires comprehension. It is both sculpture and painting, image and soul of Russia.
