Test 1

Прочитайте текст. Определите, какие из приведённых утверждений А7~А14 соответствуют содержанию текста (1 — True), какие не соответствуют (2 — False) и о чём в тексте не сказано, то есть на основании текста нельзя дать ни положительного, ни отрицательного ответа (3 — Not stated).

Russian nesting dolls, or matryoshka dolls, are little wooden dolls set inside one another, going from smallest to largest. There are usually around seven, eight or nine dolls in one set and they are painted to look like people — sometimes children, sometimes adults. Every year, hundreds of thousands of tourists visiting Russia buy them as souvenirs. How did they become so popular?

The first set of dolls was created in 1890. Two men, Vasily Zvyozdochkin and Sergey Malyutin, worked on the project together, with Vasily carving the doUs and Sergey painting them to look like Russian peasants. The largest doll featured a farm girl holding a rooster. Sergey was a crafts painter who worked in an area north of Moscow. The area, the Abramtsevo estate, was known for hosting artists, and some of Russia’s finest artists stayed there for a time. Savva Mamontov, the owner of the estate, and his wife were impressed with the dolls. Savva’s wife took the dolls to a competition in Paris in 1900. There the dolls won a bronze medal, and afterwards other doll makers began to make replicas, which were then shipped around the world.

The inspiration for the dolls is believed to have come from Japan. Vasily and Sergey admired a doll from the Japanese island of Honshu. However, it is not clear which doU. It could have been the daruma doll, which is wooden and empty inside. Or, though, the fukuruma doll, which is a set of nesting dolls, with the largest doll resembling a Buddhist monk. Either of these dolls could have been the one Vasily and Sergey admired.

The themes of the matryoshka dolls are often of farm boys and girls, but since their creation, a variety of different subjects have been painted on the dolls’ exterior. Some themes include a set of fairy tale characters, and others celebrate a particular time of the year. There are collections of animals, musicians, film stars and astronauts. The most recent ones display Russian leaders Putin, Medvedev and Yeltsin.

A mistake some non-Russians make when referring to the dolls is that they call them babushka dolls. In Russian, ‘babushka’ means ‘grandmother’. The proper name is ‘matryoshka, which means ‘little matron. It comes from the female first name, ‘Matryona’.

The design of the dolls has slowly found its way into other objects. Furniture designers have made a set of tables in which one fits under the other, and there may be three, four or five tables in a set. Some clothing designs follow the example of the dolls, in which there are several pieces of clothing that make up one item, and the wearer can remove items and wear them separately.
