Little leather cosmetic case with Crimean landscape is very comfortable in voyages. It is compact, soft, and light.
It is amazing how many things can be put inside this seemingly small cosmetic case. You can see two photos below: the case with its reverse side and cosmetic near, and the second – the same case with cosmetic inside. And everything has fit.
Fastener is a zipper. Measurements of the whole case 18×13 cm. Width of the side is from 2 to 3,5 cm (it expands to the bottom). At the reverse side is a pocket. Silk linen with padding polyester: it allows you to keep inside sharp things, for example, nail scissors.
Every cosmetic case has a Crimean landscape on its front side. The landscape is compiled from scraps of leather in different colors, and painted by acrylic paints additionally. You can choose and order a Crimean landscape in 6 variants of colors: black, grey, cherry, beige, or ginger.
Also, you can order your own landscape. The examples look on this page.
Sometimes cats settle on the cosmetic cases. Look here: cosmetic case with enamored cats.
Koktebel is a small resort village in the South-East of Crimea. There is a cape well seen from Koktebel’s queue with the name Malchin. It is famous for the likeness with the profile of the face of poet and painter Maximilian Voloshin. He wrote poems about Koktebel, drew Koktebel’s surroundings, and some of them you can see on landscape cosmetic cases.
The name “Suuru-kaya” is translated as “The Shape Rock”. By its “shape nose” it looks in Koktebel’s sky, and we look at it from Koktebel’s beach. Or you can look down and look at Suuru-kaya on a little cosmetic case.
Chameleon is a folk name of a cape that closes the Koktebel bay on the North edge. The cape changes its color a lot of times per day – it depends on the sun lighting. In the moment when the Sun looks at Chameleon’s shales – the cape is shining. When a cloud comes – Chameleon stays gloomy. And it can happen every several minutes! Cosmetic cases with landscapes can be different too. Choose!
If you go up the hill with a path going to the Chameleon cape, you can admire Koktebel bay and Karadag’s panorama. The path leads us on the Kuchuk-Enyshar, a low range of hills that ends by the Chameleon cape.
The path on Enyshars comes in the Silent bay – and you have the ability to see one more gift of Crimean beauty. The silhouette of Karadag is hidden partly by the silhouette of Chameleon, and they make together a charming landscape that stays in your memory forever.
If you go from the Silent bay a little further on the West, the Chameleon cape (which is named Toprah-kaya too) is hidden by Dzhan-Khutoran cape. Karadag’s peaks fade away in the mists, and warm wind from the sea wiggles aroma herbs and whispers to us it’s stories…
The best of all the stories of Koktebel winds were heard, written and drawn by poet and painter Maximilian Voloshin, who lived in Koktebel in the beginning of the XX century. Voloshin left us dozens of watercolor drawings with Karadag and surroundings. Voloshin didn’t aspire to photographic exactness. The majority of his plots are fiction, but they stay verily Koktebelik in any case.
The silhouette of Karadag is a “visit card” of Ordzhonikidze (folk name “Ordzho”) which is a small resort village on the shore of the large Dvuyakornaja bay. Ordzho is known for its beautiful sunsets and clear water. There was a secret military factory in this place in the past. Now the factory is absent, but Karadag is here adorning the horizon.
Karadag from the open sea is interesting too. Karadags cliffs are stoned volcanic lava, chiseled by the sea in the time of millions of years. One of the most known cliffs is Ivan the Robber rock. By its outlines the rock reminds a man in a pointed hat, who walks on water.
The last look on Karadag – from the South, from the side of Lisya bay. Let’s admire the picturesque cliffs of Karadag, whose silhouettes merge together in blue mists. Our way lies further, on the South-West.
Adalaras are rocks-islands in the sea not far from Gurzuf. “The white rocks” is a translation of Adalaras, and they look more white on the background of the dark silhouette of Ayu-dag, “Bear-mountain”. On the shore, near the root of Bear-mountain, are scattered resort buildings of well-known children’s wellness complex “Artek”.
In the heart of Crimean mountains, far from the sea, exist interesting peaks too. One of them is Kachi-Kalion, the mountain and the rock together. By its outlines it reminds of a great ship, which is sailing in the river Kacha valley. “The ship” is a translation of the word “Kalion”. Cracks and grooves in the rock fold into enormous cross, so Kachi-Kalion is called as “Cross ship” also. In the Medieval times there was a monastery here, and monk’s cells were cut inside of the rock.
Our voyage around Crimean mountains ends at the same place where Crimean mountains end – not far from Sebastopol, at the Fiolent cape. In the old past a volcano was here, and it left us picturesque cliffs and a beach where jasper and other semiprecious stones were found. It is difficult to say about the possibility of finding jasper now, but the beach is called Jasper’s in any case.
Our little journey around Crimean mountains with a little leather cosmetic case comes to the end. I hope you liked landscapes and cosmetic cases.
