Title: Mushrooms
Artist: Smirnov Vladimir
Size: 10x10x12.5
Size (inches): 4x4x5
Price: $145 $99

This mushroom shaped nesting doll has been painted by Smirnov V. from the town of Sergiev Posad. It consists of five dolls that show several scenes from the fairy-tale "Three Piglets". The smallest doll shows the piglet running through the apple garden, trying to escape from the wolf. This scene is repeated on the second doll, but here two piglets escape from the wolf. The third doll shows the piglet building the straw house (later this house will be destroyed because of the wolf's strong blow). The fourth doll features two piglets hiding in the wooden house of the second piglet. Being deceived by the sly wolf, they have opened the door letting the wolf dressed like a sheep in. The fifth doll shows three piglets nears the stone house which is the strongest of three houses, and the wolf observing the piglets from behind of the tree.
The nesting doll is made out of wood, and signed by the artist.<
