Pantone Nesting Dolls

These have been floating around the internet for a few months now, and I still can't seem to find them for sale, so they must just be a concept project, but, designer Yaroslav Rassadin re-imagined a 120 year old traditional handicraft from Russia, the matryoshka.

The Matryoshka, or Russian nesting dolls, date back to 1890. Traditionally hand painted with ornate detailing and a dynamic range of colors, Rassadin’s take on the classic Russian nesting dolls was inspired by a combination of the “Pantone matching system and UFO minimalistic styling.” His work has been described as “emotional, minimalistic and technological.”
