Matryoshka Doll

Relationship: Im/migrant

My object is the Russian matryoshka doll, a common toy for children back in the day in Eastern European countries. My mother grew up with this doll, and she carried it with her when she immigrated to the United States. I think it's a crucial part of my family's history because it embodies the culture of my ancestors.
