A figure reminiscent of the Knight of Swords, from a Russian poster c. 1914-1918. See full-size at the Hoover Institution Poster Collection.

Surely you're aware of the Russian Tarot of St. Petersburg. It's an entire Rider-Waite style deck done in this form. Beautiful, and my deck of choice. This is strikingly similar to some of the Knights in that deck.

W, I've never heard of that deck, but your comments have piqued my interest.

Thanks for mentioning it; I'll be checking it out!
