Landscapes of Crimea are notable for their strongly marked silhouettes. Mountains Ayu-Dag, Karadag, and Sokol are recognizable at any time and in any foreshortening.
Old Karadag was hardly thinking about modeling for pictures at an early age when he was a young up-and-coming volcano. But now, down through the ages, he is an ideal model for leather pictures.
But not only Karadag – most every remarkable mountain in Crimea has its own unique and recognizable silhouette, which is perfect to make into patterns for a picture.
