The difference between the costume and its figurine depiction: The costume features a gauze shirt with fine yellow-red floral ornament; the figurine depicts the shirt with a gold embroidery design, which is more typical of the Olonetsk tradition. Povoinik, a headwear often covered with a kerchief, is a required element of the festive costume; the figurine does not feature the headwear.
