Communist Nesting Dolls (Spy Museum Exclusive)

Write a Review
All is not as it seems: inside this rather forbidding doll is a smaller doll and an even smaller doll nests inside the middle doll. These wooden Communist Nesting Dolls, also known as matryoska dolls, are a satirical representation of life inside the Soviet Union. The smallest, innermost doll appears sweet and innocent like a young maiden on her honeymoon. The unhappy look on the middle doll, along with the hammer and sickle, means the honeymoon with communism may be over. And the largest doll is a vampire, indicating life in the Soviet Union pretty much sucks. Lettering on back reads Museum of Communism as this design was adapted from an advertising poster in Prague.
