Artist's Description

Matryoshka is a stereotype of the most Russian souvenir. It is not bad at all, a stereotype, for it is a symbol, a familiar image which is recognized at once without comments or any additional explanations. Still every item has a potential for further creative growth. We wanted to combine the features that seem incompatible at first sight . Matryoshka transforms into Cheburashka and Mickey Mouse, Batman, BDSM- dominatrix or into a stylized demonstrator of organs and muscles like in medical anatomy.
Basically the souvenir consists of four figures nested one into another. The largest one is 13 cm high. Such size is not too big, nor too small; it is pleasant to hold it in hands.
Concurrently there have appeared some mini-stories about the character, situational sketches, that can exist separately.
