Famous Russian Palekh paintings
In this section, unfortunately, I have only two pictures because it
was hard for me to find a set of cards. I have a thick book but it is
very hard to scan. Enjoy, anyway!
This is a fairy tale person, Sadko. He plays on his magic
gusli to call for a Sea Czar to create a storm. He wanted
to do it in order to save his city from enemy's ships. There are
different versions of this tale, and this interpretation is just
one of them.
I don't know who this is exactly but the picture is a very typical for
Russian fairy tales: a princess talking to trees, animals asking them
about love and her prince.
