Iwan with his magical Dogcoat

This is Iwan Iwanstarewitsj from the russian tale Maria Morevna.
In our adapted version he has a magical coat with a hood in the shape of a dog's head, called Graynose. Graynose speaks to him and gives him advice whenever Iwan puts up his hood.
(This picture shows Iwan as a child, by the way.)
