A Hawker of sacred pictures 1815

Traditional russia folk costume of a hawker of sacred pictures.

To supply the peasantry with sacred pictures, that are generally painted upon wooden boards, and crosses, old men travel about the  country bareheaded, and barter or exchange them; for, according to their ideas of their sanctity, no price can be put upon them, and therefore  they are never sold. Nor are they ever burnt or destroyed: when too old for use, the sacred picture is given in charge to a running stream,  which carries it away from the view of its former possessor ; and whosoever finds it, returns it again to the waters, until it is seen no  more.
