The Installation of Tsar Mikhail Romanov (Ivan Kuznetsov, 1996)

What better “contrast” piece than one illustrating the installation of the first Romanov tsar in 1613? Interestingly enough, Tsar Mikhail Romanov was installed at the Ipatievsky Monastir (Ipatiev Monastery) in Kostroma, whilst Tsar St Nikolai Aleksandrovich and his family and retainers were murdered at the Ipatievsky Dom (Ipatiev House) in Yekaterinburg. Note the deliberately archaic lettering around the border, done in the style of old Russian icons.
