Last Wednesday I asked for help figuring out what language this label was
and even with my poor, glaring photo my intelligent readers identified it as Russian.
They went on to explain to me that it is a souvenir item from Moskow
named Ivan and his horn or flute.
I am still trying to figure out more about what fable this would be from.
I promised to flip Ivan over and show you more detail.
His feet dangle from a cord, and are hand scored and burnt.
He even has hair
and beautiful blue eyes.
Unfortunately I think Ivan has lost his flute.
Any ideas about Russian stories featuring an Ivan with a horn or flute?
Be sure to come back and see if Ivan makes an appearance in the Midsummer Night’s Dream Party.
