    I think this photo was the template of the bust in terms of medal, weapon and equipment - the sniper Marija Grigorjewna Kurschinowa, who had 23 confirmed "Kill's" of German officers on her "account" ...:

    Kurschinowa, who volunteered at the front at the age of 16, took part at the liberation of the cities of Orscha and Minsk, the capture of Königsberg, in East Prussia in 1945 and survived the war ...


    The order is the "Order Slawij" (Орден Славы / Order of Fame) introduced in 1943. There were three levels - silver, silver/gold, gold:

    The order resumed - of course in Soviet iconography - the Tsarist St. Georges Cross for soldiers, which has been awarded since the Napoleonic wars in similar stages and with the same ribbon...

    ...and is comparable to the German EK's.

    Since the lady wears only one of them, it must be the third level (silver)!

    I like the subject. I hate to say it, but I wish her face was a little more prototypical Slavic, its a bit generic as is. Paint up will be telling.

    Excellent looking model I'm sure it will be popular and sell out fast.

    Nice, if rather 'Heroine of the People's Republic' in style. I'd have preferred a less glamorous portrait of Marija.
