"Not your grandma's nesting dolls."

The link is a website that has compiled 25 not-so-typical matryoshka dolls (Матрёшка). I've always loved these growing up, and my mother and I used to collect them. These dolls date back to 1890, when the first set was carved, and they usually feature a figure of a woman in traditional Russian peasant dress (сарафан). The link, however, shows some more "creative" versions. Enjoy!
