AJ02. Brest Peasant Girls - 6n 6" (Belarus)
The doll's blouses are much like those that may be purchased at handicraft stores throughout Belarus. Only one of these dolls has a necklace, which shows the peasant nature of this style of dress.
The colorful aprons that matrioshkas are famous for are here rather muted. It is in the doll's vests that the sharp colors are found. Here, they contrast wonderfully with the simple but elegant stylizations found in the blouses.
