An amazing well done video, clever and at the same time poetic. The concept is an imaginative simple one minute video that captures your consciousness towards environmental thinking. Make sure to see it.
The Little Things by Lawrence Chen via Resseny a superb environmetal blog.
I was around 10 when I was given my first matryoshka from Russia. As I recall it was a set of three. Just that doll within another doll , with in another doll an so an so…… It made me dream and dream to one day go to that country. Then I learned of the great museums and the idea of everybody been equal. So my dream grew and then came true. I went to Russia (at that time that was the name) as a student. A cheap cheap trip. And for the first time I really fell (well at the time I thought so) in love with a French boy from the tour so I was on a cloud in this very different country. But of course at that time I did not completely realize people were not happy with their regime. I only had eyes for the museum paintings (overall from Wassily Kandinki and impressionists) and you can imagine for who else. I bought a lot of matryoshka to take home as gifts and a typical Russian scarf that I wear on my hair and will never forgot he told me you look like a lovely matriuska. From then my love for matryoshka was for ever. I also became a fan of his favorite singer at that time Kate Bush and the funny part is, later I discovered she sings a song call Babushka a synonym of Matryoshka ( It means headscarf women, grand mother). Never saw him again.
The classical matryoshka has been there for ever, but it has not been very long where there has been a trend of objects inspire by matryoshkas.
Here are some of my favorites, although some of them appear to have been around for a bit, they´re classics to me.
