Another hard one, not because I couldn't think of things, but because those things were hard to draw hahaha
Rasputin..oh how I love that Boney M song, I have been playing it all week in honour of our virtual trip..
The Romanov family, who all died so tragically...or did they? There has always been a question mark over whether Anastasia escaped..
Fabergé eggs, so very beautiful and bejewelled. of the 50 Imperial eggs made 42 still survive.
Russian nesting dolls, also known as Matryoshka dolls, are wooden dolls of various sizes. Each wooden doll open to reveal another doll inside, and they are often painted very elaborately....this reminds me I have a set of unpainted dolls in a drawer, I should get them out and paint them.
The Bolshoi Ballet company, known the world over and based at the Bolshoi theatre in Moscow.
KGB...ahem, the less said about them the better huh?
The architecture..this is seriously stunning, best showcased in the churches and cathedrals, some dating back to the Medieval period.
I went with a collage of several things for my page..
For my card I went with the character of Baba Yaga, the witch like creature from Slavic folklore. She is said to fly around inside a giant mortar, with pestle in her hand. She captures and eats children. Her house is a hut that stands on chickens legs..
