thats a russian toy, i guess it is. its name is matrushka. i didnt know it before. and it says on the outer shell: "i once was a swan" then "then i was swallowed by a fisch" and "and then i was reborn as a fisch" and then "and then i swallowed a swan". the smallest puppet says "that was me".
its for a store in berlin-mitte with a russian touch.
