"Neva. The Granite Sculptures. Shih Tze"

A Postcrossing postcard from Natalye in Moscow.

She works in a library and writes that the sculpture is based on what Alexander Pushkin wrote in the poem “The Bronze Horseman”:

“…the Neva now is clad in granite with many a bridge to overspan it;
The islands lie beneath a screen
Of gardens deep in dusky green.”

The stamps look amazing too.

What a wonderful world we live in.

Thanks Natalye!
