He had reddish hair and a long, very Celtic-looking face I would have expected to see in Ireland, not Russia...I am reminded again of the Celtic exhibition in Venice and the suggestion that the Celts may have originated in the Russian steppes. Perhaps the love of horses which began there is the very same that can be seen in County Kildare today.
