Antonina Nezhdanova in Snegurochka, 1911
One of you should vistit my blog and tell the Russian fairy tale about Snegurochka, because I'm not the right one to do it! In the blogspot 'Snegourotchka' owned by Bénédicte, it says: "There are many versions of the story, but most people agree that Snegurochka - the Snow Maiden - is the daughter of Father Christmas (or Father Frost in Russian) and Spring, and made out of snow. She lives a shielded existence, but when she discovers the outside world and is given the ability to love, she melts". What a wonderful tale! Read some more here, too.
