Collage 663

We are in Volume IV, Part Four, Chapter I. I used a bit of text that translates in English as "they did not dare to look life in the face". This is referring to Natasha and Princess Marya as they mourn the death of Prince Andrei. Throughout this project, I have been drawn towards religious imagery. Here is a mixture of Hindu and Russian orthodox imagery.  -- Lola
