The plywood magnet is carved in the shape of Russian Matryoshka and painted in famous Semyonov style – yellow dress, red shawl, black hair and central motif with large flowers. Light and minimalistic, it can be a nice souvenir and home decoration.
We can make simular magnets for your city or with any other your image.
Please, note that any sizes and designs can vary due to handwork.
Azhna nesting dolls and accessories are made in Voznesenskoye (Nijny Novgorod region of Russia), which is motherland of Russian Matryoshka. People there create Russian folk art for many generations, and even children like to play in making Babushka dolls, like their parents do - this is how new artists grow from their childhood.
Blank items are turned of dry linden wood by professional artisans or carved of plywood by laser. The wood is dried for 3 years before it comes to turners, so that it becomes strong and saves its shape well. We use high quality German turning machines to provide best quality of woodwork. The blanks then are hand painted by artists. As there are hundreds of artists in Voznesenskoye, they create a great range of different styles. Painted dolls are covered by several layers of safe varnish, which makes Matryoshkas bright and shiny and defends the painting from damages.
