Beatles Matryoshka Dolls

Just a quick e-mail post to share my prize office possession: my
Russian Matryoshka Beatles. I got these from my friend Mo's garage
sale years ago for a buck. John, Paul, George & Ringo have started
many conversations ever since. The artist is from Moscow. His name is
written on the bottom of the biggest nesting doll: John, which I
assume means that he was the artist's favorite Beatle. "Mockba 1991"
is written right next to the signature. Each Beatle has two portraits-
one from the psychedelic era and the other from the Let It Be/Abbey
Road days. Thanks, Mo for the bargain.
