Default Russian painted pin

The face on this pin is the size of my pinkie fingernail. The macro really brought out the brush strokes.

Do you have a shot showing the whole top of the pin? I like this.

Caryl,

Typical Russian to my eyes, orthodox in a way. Those icons with religious motives... Very skilled artists. Suppose they work woth a magnifying glas. Steady hands are a necessity
