This is not only a natural phenomenon typical for Russia and the best season of the year, but also one of the main subjects of folklore, fairy tales, legends and Russian life. Russian troika (trinity) is straightly connected with Russian winters and the three horses symbolize the three winter months and also the lucky number three.
Country side and village life style became a motive for these Matryoshka creators. The life in Russian villages is completely different from the life in the big cities.
