Picture of the beautiful wooden carved hand painted Snegurochka or the Russian Snow Maiden doll in one of souvenir & gift shops on Old Arbat, the famous pedestrian street in downtown of Moscow city.

Snegurochka (diminutive) or Snegurka, or The Snow Maiden, is a character in Russian fairy tales. This character has no apparent roots in traditional Slavic mythology and customs and its first appearance in Russian folklore occurred in the 19th century.
