Russian, hand carved and painted. Wooden set of 5 nesting ESKIMO BABUSHKA dolls.
Height of the biggest doll is 17.5 cm or 6 7/8 inches. The first one signed by the artist.
These dolls are creations of a very skilled and passionate artist who has developed her own style which is very traditional. A third northern group, the Aleut, is closely related to these two. They share a relatively recent common ancestor, and a language group (Eskimo-Aleut). The word Eskimo derives from phrases that Algonquin tribes used for their northern neighbors. The Inuit and Yupik peoples generally do not use it to refer to themselves, and the governments in Canada and Greenland have ceased using it in official documents.
I also have more Russian dolls from this artist, in my shop. These sets are truly beautiful works of art, finished all round to the highest standard by one of the very best artists in Russia. A must have for Russian lovers and it would make an amazing and unique gift for any Occasion!!
