Obama & Medvedev Nesting Dolls

Obama & Medvedev Nesting Dolls

Obama will visit Moscow on July 6-8 to meet with President Medvedev and Prime Minister Putin. So now if you walk through the Red Square and Kremlin areas or any tourist attractions or crafts markets Vernisazh in Izmailovo you can see the ubiquitous nesting doll with Obama on them and also the American flag! These nesting dolls called Matreshka are one of the national souvenirs of Russia and are hand made from wood and hand painted (cheap ones have photo copies on it).

PS: This picture was taken in an open area market near a stand with many Matreskas dolls, so because of sunlight it was quite hard to avoid a glare over heads of the presidents caused by reflection from laquered surfaces of nestling dolls.

With BEST Regards from Moscow,

Arthur is absolutely wonderful. I traveled to Russia alone but didn't want to miss out on the opportunity to see and learn as much about Russia, as possible. We saw the tourist spots as well as the authentic Russian restaurants and shops. Arthur was informative with history and background about the sites, Russia's buildings and Russia in general. I felt completely safe at all times and have recommended Arthur to many families adopting from my adoption agency. Kindly, Tammy Stevens
