Traditional Matryoshka Nested Doll Making: from Russia to America

January 23

Hosted by the Wells Public Library, this beautifully illustrated interactive presentation by Marina Forbes will feature the history of Matryoshka nested doll making in Russia. Using a fully illustrated show and numerous exhibits, including examples of her own work and from her extensive collection, Forbes will examine the tapestry of the rich folk tradition and symbolism of the doll’s appearance and the interesting link between doll making and other traditional Russian art forms.
