    Some more pics...:


    BTW: The title of the show "Armija na Ladonij" ("Армия на ладони") means "Army In The Hands" - but it is consistently wrongly translated with "Army of the Palm"! "ладонь" (= "Ladon") means in Russian either "Hand" as well as "Palm"!)


    This is the bane of Internet translation machines as well as the credulity of their users!

    What sense should "Army of the Palm" have for a figure show ...?

    Anyway - take a look at the pics is worth it!

    The person using the translator wouldn't know the difference between Hand or Palm Martin which is why the translator is mistakenly trusted. I have to concede that if I were organising an international show I might seek a second opinion....LOL. Never mind, in the majority of cases it works OK and for non-linguists like myself is an indispensable tool.

    I really should pay much more attention to this particular thread. I knew nothing about this show and would have loved to have gone?
    The last time I was in Moscow was nearly 40 years ago. It's a wonderful city and the people are great (just like us Scots).
    Recovered the entire cost of the trip by selling 2 pairs of Levis and a duffel coat on the 'black market'~
