The prize of the Russian National Movie Awards “Georges” is a matryoshka: it is a symbol of folk art and Russia. Exclusively for the awards was developed the cinematographic prize, connected with Georges Méliès, in honor of whom the awards is named.
Till 2012 was used a wooden matryoshka, developed by artist Natalia Petrova. Each matryoshka is decorated with a scene from Méliès’ movies, and the smallest one has a director’s autograph.
Since 2012 we’ve got new version of matryoshka. It was created by artists Denis Petrov and Oleg Filatchev with Bakhmetiev Crystall House.
