Postcrossing Incoming! Traditional Ryazan attire, Russia

Anastasiya keeps sending me beautiful postcards, with new stamps. This time, an example of the headdress typically used by girls in Ryazan, from ancient times.
This is known thanks to archeological reasearch on the Old city of Ryazan, burnt by Tatars in the XIII Century. The hanging diadems are called ryasna.

The stamps now... wow. Another of these commemorative issues with anniversaries of traditional factories, this time, ZIL! The four stamps are gorgeous, colourful, and I had never seen them before.
