The Nesting Dolls:

The first Russian Matryoshka appeared in Moscow in the 1890's. In 1900, these spectacular dolls were presented to the public at the World Exhibition in Paris (earning them a bronze medal). After that event, Matryoshka became a well-known and popular doll all over the world. The traditional Matryoshka doll is usually set of seven wooden dolls of decreasing sizes that all fit inside each other, one by one.
