|Photographed in November 2012, an elderly woman travels with a custom painted suitcase, in Armenia. The paint work includes an aeroplane and the letters DDR and CCCP, references to East Germany and the Soviet Union, respectively. Along the side there is some découpage of young women.|
The plane depicted appears to be a Ту-154 [wiki], albeit in a distorted form, where the wings sit underneath the tail fin, giving it an ungainly appearance.
The first image caught my attention, and if it weren't for the second candid photo, I would have assumed it as a mere art installation. The life story of this object has me intrigued.
