The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen

Updated on August 2, 2013

Tale of the Snow Queen Nesting Doll

The famous fairytale The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen is transformed into the Russian nesting matryoshka dolls by the Russian artist Natalia Kruglova. This doll of 7 pieces has different scenes from the fairy tale on each of them.

The first paragraph...

taken from The Russian Store Blog

Once upon a time a magician made a magic mirror. In this mirror, a kind face became wicked; a look of hate was reflected as a look of love. One day, however, the mirror broke, and if a sliver of glass from the mirror entered someone’s eye, that person’s soul became evil, if another pierced a heart, that heart grew hard and cold as ice.
