What is Anastasia doing in this picture? It is very puzzling, maybe she's performing some bizarre ritual? :-\

I always wondered the same thing about this picture.
Although i doubt its some ritual...Anastasia was known for taking goofy pictures...this is probably another one of those

The strangest image that I've ever seen about Anastasia! Perhaps she was just playing

I think the strangest one i seen was that one where shes slumped on a couch and theres this ghostly being standing over her...obviously it was a photographic trick...but it looked strange non the less

Yes, she was just playing. I don't know the story behind why that circle was there in the first place, however. We've discussed this photo before, but unfortunately I can't find it in any of the threads when I use the search function.

I always imagined she was acting out something from A Little Princess. Remember the part where Sara draws a circle around herself for protection and then sits in it?
Although that's just my theory, I have no idea if the IF ever read A Little Princess. :]

Althought A Little Princess was published at the time, I have no idea if it was available in a Russian translation.  Even so, Anastasia wouldn't be acting it out, as the thing about the magic circle is only in the 1995 movie version, and not in the book.

First would likely be 1915/16.   The imperial family travelled around alot and would sometimes have breaks.  There is other  photos with Olga and Tatiana holding local children.

Second there was no image

Third I am assuming 1909/1910.

I've always assumed that it was Anastasia showing off her artwork.

Post by: Ally Kumari on February 24, 2010, 11:55:20 AM
I would say 1914, because it was taken aboard a yacht. To my knowledge the last sailing of the Imperial family was right before the Great war.

I feel like a right dunce asking all these questions here, but, does anyone know what the caption says under this picture?:

I´m not sure if the first word I translate correctly into English, but I think it would be "Emperor´s daughters, Their Imperial Highnesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia"

In this photo,  who is the man next to Anastasia and who are the little boys between Alexei and Tatiana?

The man next to Anastasia I belive is Heinrich of Prussia and the boys between Alexei and Tatiana is there cousin Georg Donatus and Ludwig of Hesse.
Title: Flower Day movie
Post by: AnastasiaNikolaevna on February 02, 2011, 08:02:21 AM
Hi everyone, I have recently come accross a video on Youtube of actual footage of the Romanovs, and in it there are scenes taken from what I think is Flower day, but I'm not sure what year. If anyone can help to identify it that would be great.

Here is this video, in case you haven't seen it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pG2Hec_8Vzc

The flower day scene occurs at around 2 minutes and 38 seconds in.

Thanks again!

It was White Flower Day in the Crimea -- 1912.

What is Anastasia doing in this picture? It is very puzzling, maybe she's performing some bizarre ritual? :-\

Could this possibly be an Ouroboros the ancient symbol for eternal return & resurrection. What better person to be inside other than Anastasia, the one who will rise again. With all her mystic connections doubtless she would have known its meaning ?

Post by: Holly on March 28, 2011, 10:35:07 AM
That's a very interesting thought, Carisbrooke. Although, I very highly doubt this photograph was meant to be representative of anything so metaphorical as "eternal return". She was still a child.

What's your question about it? It's a pretty well known photo--taken sometime during the war years, on a balcony. There's a fuller version of it somewhere.

Yes, it was taken in 1915 at AP balcony.

Is this her? [img]http://img202.imageshack.us/img202/6496/tekq.jpg[img]

People on Tumblr say it is but I am seriously doubtful.

Looks like her , but the provenance of the image is very doubtful, since the seller had the bad habit of sell, in purpose, fake Royalty images.

This picture has come up before, it's been debunked.
I think if anything, maybe someone did some fancy photoshop work, but I believe the consensus of the AP was that it was NOT an image of Anastasia.
Title: Re: Question about/help with photos of Anastasia
Post by: Carolath Habsburg on August 27, 2013, 10:54:37 PM
I believe you, Laura!! This seller tried to sell this photoshopped image (by our very own Grand duchess Ally) for a ridiculous price saying it was real  image from his/her  grandmother collection!!!!

Gladly, this seller  dissapeared, but not before scamming lots of people.

You missed how he defended himself over here in third person!!! LOL
