Russian Doll!

Matryoshka doll

Matryoshka doll

I do not know much about Russia, but one of the things that always caught my attention is called Russian Dolls. His real name is Matryoshka doll, is hollow inside, contains another, and this in turn has also inside another, and so on.

The fact that the total number of dolls varies is a curious fact in that there must be an odd number, because in Russia even numbers are considered unlucky or like death. The largest matryoshka which is known has 75 dolls. It must be fun to get another in search of the ultimate.

The matrioshka brings the idea of motherhood, fertility, wealth, and eternal life, and is a symbol of the Russian land. The matryoshka, or mother, symbolizes the big family united, the infinity of the world. It is said that people are like Russian matryoshka as to understand the truth and essence of the Russian soul, you have to remove all the "layers" surface to finally reach the soul.

I hope someday to go to Russia and buy a matryoshka representing my family and another to represent me. Hahahahahahaha.
