The doll, named “Frau Lotte”, was one of twenty ambassadors for the candidacy, all made by artists on different continents. They are 1.8 meters tall, weighing 60 kilos. Nina decided to use the colours of the German flag for hers
The commitee of the candidacy of the Russian city Yekaterinburg to the World Expo 2025 chose Nina Nolte to create the German MATRYOSHKA.
Nina decided to use the colours of the German flag for hers. Nina´s German MATRYOSHKA, called “Frau Lotte”, is an appeal to all nations for peace in the world.
The six biggest world religions form a circle around the peace sign, representing symbolically the more than 190 nationalities that live peacefully together in Berlin, the capital of Germany. In addition Nina Nolte created images on the matryoshka, showing the well known landmarks of Berlin, including the famous Gate of Brandenburg.
Nina was able to create the matryoshka in just five days thanks to the great support from her team and Becker & Beckmann, Berlin.
The doll was exhibited for one week in the Russian House of Culture and Science in Berlin. She was then sent to the Russian Cathedral of The Holy Trinity in Paris, where she was on displayed on the press conference on December 5, 2018, and attended by significant dignitaries, among others the mayor of Yekaterinburg and the Governor of the Ural Federal District.
Unfortunately for Yekaterinburg, the Japanese city of Osaka was chosen to host the World Expo 2025, and “Frau Lotte” and the other nineteen matryoshkas now delight the people in Yekaterinburg until further info.
