Hello! First off I want to say I love your blog. Lots of wonderful interesting posts. I was wondering if you could answer a question for me about Russian iconography. I'm an art student doing a project based on the fairy tale of Vasilisa the Wise and Koschei the Deathless. I want to use very culturally specific themes to illustrate his evilness. Can you tell me some colors/animals/plants etc. that have negative connotations in Russian art and culture? If not that's ok too :D Thank you!
