Ornate hand paintings of fairytales by Svetlana Kosolova

When I found these pictures I thought ‘stunning’, then I looked at my hands and I thought, ‘they are so sadly … clean’. Svetlana Kosolova, Russian musician and painter, probably would know how make my hands more ‘cheerful’. She uses her own hand as her canvas as she paints charming little scenes inspired by fairytales.

The artist’s series of hand paintings include a range of stories from classic Hans Christian Andersen’s tales, like The Little Mermaid, to Russian folklore like The Snow Maiden. So you can admire the magical, colourful stories painted on Svetlana’s hands and remember your own childhood’s fairytales.
