It's difficult to find a symbol of Russia more popular than the traditional Russian matryoshka. The matryoshka doll - the wooden decorated toy "with a secret" - is known even in the countries most distant from Russia. Tourists from Europe and the USA bring matryoshka dolls back home; the lovers of exotics collect matryoshkas in Australia and South Africa; the simplicity and originality of matryoshka dolls attract the fans of Russian folk art. Bright and picturesque matryoshka dolls decorate the fireplaces and bookshelves in the homes of thousands of Russians
History of Gzhel crafts has more than six and a half centuries. The origin of the word «Gzhel» caused a lot of controversy among scientists. The most well-known researchers trace it to the verb «to burn» («bake the clay»). Gzhelsky farmers for centuries burned pottery, toys, tiles.

Surprisingly, while painting wood items, only gold colour is used. Silver is forbidden.
