Collage 235

Several years ago I bought a huge box of ephemera from a used book store in Greenfield, Massachusetts for $10. I sorted through it and recycled some of it, gave some to other artists and still have an enormous amount of wonderful materials. One such treasure was a box of Russian icon painting postcards. Here is one of them. I noted that this is St. Sergius of Rozanezh who is "one of the most venerated saints of the Russian Orthodox Church". His feast days are July 5 and 18. The text never said, but maybe his face was on the icon that Princess Mara gave her brother as he set off for war? -- Lola
