Inspiration: The Museum of Russian Icons

I recently made a trip to the Museum of Russian Icons in Clinton, Massachusetts and found it to be an interesting artistic counterpoint to the Soviet aesthetic that underpins MTS.  In my original version one of the communities affected by the Colour was a village of Old Believers and I think there is something to be gained by perhaps adding a mad icon maker to their ranks…

While in Clinton (which is oddly enough a town on the edge of the Wachusett Reservoir (yeah, I’ll get to “The Colour Out of Space” soon)), I recommend Lou’s Diner which has truly excellent french fries.
