PBC0235: pride in place

PBC 235 expresses powerful pride in the grandeur of Siberian physical geography, particularly Siberia’s great rivers and the high mountains of the Altai. Many works using PBC 235 convey a sense of fairytale-like magical wonder (W169, W371), often personifying a river or the Altai. One usage of PBC 235 shows pride by depicting a poetic map of Siberia, including features from all compass points (W280).
