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.
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 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)
The Planet of Le Petite Prince
wherein the mind perceives a familiar pattern where none actually exists. Common examples are perceived images of animals, faces, or objects in cloud formations.), Street Photography and sunlight on various surfaces

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
