Name: Edyta L.
Mother tongue: Polish
Occupation: Artist
My object: Matryoshka
My story about it:
This matryoshka is a gift from Śimo. Originally, matryoshkas are from the USSR. You were also able to get them in Poland. I was born in Poland. I like these wooden dolls. They remind me of my home country even though they originate from the neighbouring country. My head is large and round, and my cheeks are red like the matryoshka’s. A matryoshka is infinitely large, but to its inside! Like an onion, it is made up out of rings. The large on the small scale, and the small on the large scale. Vodka, Barszcz, dance and tears. Nazdrowie!
