Matryoshka is a piece of decorative Art. A matryoshka blank is usually cut out of wood and follows the outlines of a human figure. The artistic meaning of the matryoshka painting is to create an image of a person and his family. Traditional Russian nesting dolls use elements of Russian ornaments when drawing aprons and kokoshniks of nesting dolls. When creating scarves for matryoshka dolls, artists repeat the drawings of Pavloposad shawls. A distinctive feature of the traditional Russian nesting dolls is the use of flowers to decorate the apron and scarf of each matryoshka in the set.
