From the history of Voznesensk Matryoshka
Voznesensk district of Nizhny Novgorod region has never been famous for soil fertility. Its residents had a hard time, but miserability of native land became the impetus for the development of handicraft talents. And locals had them in excess, as if nature tried to compensate their shortcomings in terms of harvest. This was brightly highlighted in the skill of wood work. Turing craft became well developed at the beginning of the XIX century. Over time, there has grown the particular direction – Matryoshka dolls manufacture.
The artizans living here for generations were perfecting the art of dolls creating. They have mastered many styles and techniques, bringing each one to perfection. And, of course, they have created their own style, which is rightful honor for the population of the district – even the official website of the local administration proudly talks about the Polhov-Maidan nesting doll, named after one of the villages of the district.
Every second inhabitant here is engaged in the work of their ancestors all life long. Only here an artizan can make a huge nesting doll with 50 and even 80 pcs in set, including dolls from the tiniest one (size of a match head) to almost meter hight Russian beauty. Here you can even find a monument of the nesting doll, which serves as a real patron of the area for many generations, and in the local Museum you can admire the exhibition of one and a half thousand items, embodying the whole history of Russian Matryoshka.
