Name: Larissa M.
Mother tongue: Russian
Occupation: Accountant
My object: headscarf
My story about it:

I got this brown scarf as a gift from my mother-in-law 10 years ago.
This kind of scarf has traditionally been manufactured for more than 200 years in the Russian town of Pawlow Possad. Depending on its size, it can be used as a scarf or headscarf, but today we tend to buy them as a souvenir. I like these scarves a lot and I have worn mine casually.

Once I walked with a Belgian friend through the city. We stopped by the famous cathedral in Sankt Petersburg where there were many tourists. Not only that you can visit the cathedral, you can also have your picture taken with the ‘real’ Emperor Peter I or Empress Katarina I. Of course, these are just actors in costumes.
A married couple approached me suddenly and asked me if they could have a picture taken with me… I became even more irritated when they asked me which my character was. I thought about it for a second, then smiled and replied: “Nobody, I’m just wearing a Russian scarf.“
