These paper nesting houses are inspired by Russian matryoshka, also called babushka, dolls. The design is based on Russian izba, and I tried to keep the sense, if not the literal style, of Russian decorative art in the pattern and coloring of the houses.

I don't want to be all talking Barbie, but these little houses were one of my bigger challenges because of the sheer amount of calculations that needed to be factored into their creation. My brain hurts, but I revel in the fact that I am working to avoid Alzheimer's.
