wurst Gallery sent Russian dolls to 19 artists (via Sugar 'n Spicy)

A set of Nesting dolls or Matryoshka was one of those things that boynton silently coveted as a child. Only she never let on. Being the youngest of six kids there may have seemed some direct analogy in the hierarchy - now the reductive nesting routine seems more generally analogous.

In the meantime, a few more googled examples:
Autumn hunt with borzois
Russian presidents
The Cuban Missile Crisis

Comments: nesting

I see Stalin has been tactfully omitted from the collection...of Russian Presidents

No Clinton White House? I saw those on sale in New York ages ago.

the mind matryoshkas...

possibly a new competition for Potemkin to run?
Top Ten Oz bungles best suited to a set of nesting dolls. And why.

That sounds more like a job for people with Photoshopping skills.

Why not introduce some of these images (eg. autumn hunt with borzois)into the main text?
Shift to an image-text blog.

I'd love to - but just not sure if Mr Wickstein's Uber largesse extends to bulko image hosting!...
Perhaps in the future if and when I bite the bullet and move to my own domain, I'll start including pics.
I admire the shift in this direction that has occurred with Junk For Code - and the image based blogs you have been uncovering for us. Inspiring.

There's still room to move in the Ubersportingpundit domain. If you want to include images, you are more then welcome to.
