Onfim's Dad Has Like 14 Fingers


BBL 210, originally uploaded by quinn.anya.

Actually, I'm not sure if this is Onfim or not, since I don't read Old Novogrodian. But there was a kid named Onfim. And he did do a lot of drawings of himself with his dad and with his mom. And riding a horse, stabbing someone with a spear. All the usual stuff that medieval kids drew onto birchbark in 13th century Russia.
