The Five of Flags for the 1917 Tarot

I am just so in love with this! The image has gone through a lot of changes , from a doodle-like MsPaint picture to the final image of the Five of Flags (Cups) of the 1917 Tarot!

 

The woman on the picture holds on to the idea of the Tsar and pre-revolution Russia, ignoring the progress the country has made under communist rule. Who is she? A former noble, grieving her lost status? Princess Anastasia, grieving her murdered family and hiding her identity? Could she be me (I do have a soft spot for the Romanovs)? I will leave the decision to you, dear reader.
