This matryoshka depicts Russian Hunting. Hunting in Russia has an old tradition in terms of indigenous people, while the original features of state and princely economy were farming and cattle-breeding. There was hunting for food as well as sport.The word "hunting" (, okhota) first appeared in the common Russian language at the end of the 15th century. Before that, the word "catchings" (, lovy) existed to designate the hunting business in general. The hunting grounds were called in turn lovishcha . In the 15th-16th centuries, foreign ambassadors were frequently invited to hunts; they also received some of the prey afterwards. So did Feodor I, in particular, once sending out nine elks, one bear and a black-and-brown fox.
