russian dolls

Another set of Russian dolls, a long time in the making.

From largest to smallest they are: Henry VIII, Thomas More, Thomas Cromwell, Cardinal Wolsey and the head of Anne Boleyn.

I was given a set of unpainted Russian dolls last week so spent some of last week, some of the weekend and most of today painting them.

They start with the outermost newborn or foetal doll and get older as they get smaller until in the centre is a skeleton.
