Nesting dolls are a highly collectible form of art with a history of over 100 years. Matryoshkas tend to be crafted in a variety of styles today. The most popular Russian Matryoshka Doll is considered as a collectible item that is artistically designed and prepared in different artistic styles. Traditional matryoshka sets started with a set of five dolls, which began with the largest doll depicting an adult female holding a rooster representing the mother. Each subsequent doll represented a child with the smallest doll depicting a baby.
