Hello my friends!
In continuation of the ‘Russian’ topic, I decided to post the authentic picture of me. By ‘authentic’, I mean the picture, which reflects my national background at its best. For that, I included 2 necessary items: the fur hat and the legendary capet on the wall.
You definitely saw a similar type of the hat in movies, pictures of older times, etc. The hat immediately triggers the particular stereotypes about the culture.
The carpet on the wall probably requires more clarification. In later Soviet Union times (and actually in some houses still!), the carpets were used to decorate the wall. Every house, had at least one room a carpet hanging. The carpets also had a function to reduce the noise from neighbours, as the wall were not that thick in some cases. This is how the carpet become a notable interior item, depicting the whole epoch.
What about my Eastern European friends? Did you also have a trend of the carpet on the wall?
