Card #5 from Finland

Received this interesting card from Ms. Selma Teran Medrano, a 5-year-old cute little girl from Finland, who sends postcards with the help of her mom.. isn't that wonderful..!! ..and she sent me with the card of my theme with a ship stamp.

What is interesting is that, the painting in the card is done by a German artist - Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840), the card was printed in Russia, and sent from Finland to India.

The painting is now at The State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia.

See the actual painting and description at the Museum's website - http://www.hermitagemuseum.org/html_En/03/hm3_3_1_10a.html
