Broad chest

Free Printable Saying Russian Character Names

The chest, like the hands, is “white” in Russian folktales, and as with other fixed epithets, the meaning of the adjective has lost its full meaning: it is merely a positive description. “White,” in English, would not convey the same impression: therefore I chose to translate the epithet as “broad,” because that conveys a positive meaning in English.
