Ryaba the Hen (Russian: Курочка Ряба, Kurochka Ryaba) is a Russian folktale.
A very short version: There lived an old man and an old woman, and they had a hen called Ryaba. One day, the hen laid an egg — not a simple egg, but a golden one. The old man tried to break it, but could not, the old woman tried to break it, but could not. A mouse was running by, swayed its tail, the egg fell and broke. The old man is crying, the old woman is crying. “Don’t cry”, says Ryaba the hen, “I’ll lay you a new egg, not a golden egg, but a simple one”.
Films based on the tale:
As all of our babushka matryoshka Russian nesting dolls, this one is handcrafted in the heart Russia.
It is hand turned from linden wood and then hand painted by a professional nesting doll artist.
It is a typical nesting doll, and each smaller piece of the set fits into the next larger one.
Each doll is coated with 3-5 layers of crystal clear lacquer.
As with all our dolls this one has been signed by the artist.
*Each doll is handmade and hand-painted, actual sizes and styles may vary slightly
