The Great Taking of the Veil by Mikhail Nesterov (1862-1942) is a rejection of wordly vanity and entrance into the Russian Orthodox faith. One of Nesterov's finest Symbolist paintings, originally done in 1898.
Detailed hand painted brooch from Russia, 2½" diameter. Gift boxed. 1 only, as shown.
NOTE: There may be "hot spots" in our photographs - white areas caused by studio lights reflecting off the shiny surface of the pin.
