Collage 43

Lynn did this one.

Here is a passage that I love: "He lay directly under the icons; his two large, fat arms were freed of the coverlet and lay on top of it. In his right hand, which lay palm down, a wax candle had been placed between the thumb and the index finger, held in place by an old servant from behind the armchair." This is the deathbed of Count Bezukhov. Volume I, Part One, Chapter xxv. page 80. You can practically smell the incense. Such a visual description. I want to see the icons! -- Lola
