Sunday Stamps #89

Hurrah for Sunday, and Sunday Stamps!

Theme for this week, by suggestion: music, literature, and books.

I am going to stretch the theme a bit and post a stamp that I think is illustrating a folk tale:

And, I don't even know the details of the fairy or folk tale, only that the woman reminds me of Rapunzel.  Here she is not in a tower but perched on a rock by a pretty stream.  If someone could help me with this interpretation I would appreciate it.

Theme next week:  Open, anything you wish.

Join us this week by adding your link below.
I have a page for this blog and my other blog on Facebook:  Like that page to have quick notice of when posts are up (and very little else).

I also have this stamp and have been wondering what the tale was.
In fact, I was going to suggest folktales as a theme (I have a few Chinese ones that I also think are folktales that are unknown to me)

The stamp No 913, 4.00 Rubles. The Malachite Casket: Mistress of the Cooper Mountain and Tanyushka.
The stamp No 914, 6.00 Rubles. Golden Hair: the hunter Ailyp and his ladylove Golden Hair.

Lovely stamp!

It does look remarkably like Rapunzel but the story is quite different, now that I've read it. It's a beautiful stamp.

Thank you postcardy for the link. I investigated the other stamps and the story. Yes, I think we could have fairy or folk tales as a future theme.

Fine stamp. Thanks to postcardy for finding us the story.

I like the golden hair rippling down the stream, and the fox peering over from the other side. Its not a story I know although thanks to Postcard I at least know the names.
Other countries folk tales good theme.
