Matryoshkas (Russian nesting dolls) of Russian footballers Aleksander Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev portrayed as inmates were made by an artist from a town of Ruza in Moscow Oblast Vera Streltsova. This is being reported by a 360 TV-channel.
Matryoshka souvenirs have always been popular in Russia, and I have many orders on the manufacturing of Matryoshkas with faces of famous people. Now, I’m working on Matryoshkas of Kokorin and Mamaev portrayed as inmates. However, I hope they will pull themselves together, and everything will be fine with our footballers.” Streltsova said.
Earlier, the artist made Matryoshkas of Russian footballers of 2018 FIFA World Cup, as well the ones with the face of a Portugal footballer Cristiano Ronaldo and the US President Donald Trump.
