The Babushka doll contains within itself as a form, all that is good, true, beautiful and one. It is a time-honoured archetype of the slow and complex flowering of human development across the lifespan. Each stage honoured, from the delicate simplicity of the tiniest doll, to the rich detail lavished on the largest. Its form embraces each stage of development. As such, the symbolism contained within the Babushka is robust, and as a Reflective Therapy, can be used with confidence for both male and female clients.



A Babushka doll, also known as a Matryoshka doll: a set of wooden nesting dolls of decreasing size placed one inside the other, was first produced in Russia in 1890.
