World Record Russian Nesting Dolls

Russian matryoshka dolls fit inside one another. You might be surprised to learn they aren’t all that ancient- the first set was made in 1892. But how many dolls can you fit inside other dolls? The answer at this point is 51. Youlia Bereznitskaia holds the world record for her hand-painted set of Russian nesting dolls, shown above. The largest is one foot, 9.25 inches (53.97 cm) and the smallest is 0.125 inches (0.31 cm) tall. When I first learned that, I wondered why Bereznitskaia didn’t keep building them larger or smaller after gaining the world record in 2003, but there are more than 60 dolls in this picture, so maybe she did. -via TYWKIWDBI
