This is more “period” than the last one. Still… this picture raises questions… did she live past the chaos of the Civil War… did she last through the purges and the Second Great Patriotic War… or, did she go abroad to China, France, or America? Remember… nobody knew that the tsarist edifice was going to fall. It was going to be there for all time, because it had always been there, wasn’t it? God laughed bitterly at our foolishness… and He still does, by the way.
