I understand that each doll is painted on request.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Rogers Post is an entirely non-commercial project of a retiree.   The Host of International Blogging presents this post as artistry. These Russian dolls are each Unique Pieces of  Art.  In fact, this is art squared = each doll is a piece of art and Alex’s photograph of the doll is art.  These images are offered by Alex Markovich. Thank you,  Alex.

Russian Artist Olga Ermakova creates Matryoshka dolls with a portrait of your selection.

The history of Matryoshka dolls dates back several centuries, and has proven to be an enduring and representative icon of Russian culture and art.

Russian Dolls #1


It is perhaps the most emblematic and desirable souvenirs, inasmuch as it is known worldwide as being uniquely Russian.

A Matryoshka doll with a portrait of your selection is an original present, as it bears Russian culture and traditions, as well as a portrait resemblance of your choosing; such as a portrait of your family, work team or any other social cell.

I am Alex Markovich. I am 37 (born on April 10, 1978) and live in Russia.


I showed an interest in photography during my early years. My parents were always perplexed as to why I took photos of a trees reflection in puddles, or sunlight on the windowsill, rather than photos of my grandparents. I call my style Contemplative Photography or Haiku Photography. What does unite my photos with this genre of poetry? Evanescent mood and a deep feeling for the present moment.
I am a strong advocate that photographs are, first of all, not electronic images, so that is why I present my photos in magazines, calendars, photo exhibitions and postcards which I send all over the world.
My favourite subjects in Photography are Street Cats Photography, Pareidolia (Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon involving a stimulus (an image or a sound)

“Before I built a wall I’d ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offense.
Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,” Robert Frost

  1. I never knew there was a word for it, but I occasionally hear music, or rhythm in machines (fans, motors, the heating/cooling system). If I stop to pay too much attention to it, it goes away. Pareidolia, eh?
