I really like this painting of Ivan Tsarevich and the Firebird by Viktor Vasnetsov. It’s the carpet that really got my attention. You can see that it’s floating and rippling in the air currents, but it still looks thick and heavy like a rug should. It looks like something you’d actually use on your floor. Ivan Tsarevich and the Firebird are Russian folklore characters. I don’t usually explore Russian art, but I found my way over there because lately I’ve been listening to Stravinsky‘s ballet, The Firebird.
