On 12th February 1947 an asteroid of metallic nature went through the Earth's atmosphere, creating the largest rain of meteorites known in recent decades. Sikhote-Alin meteorites are considered the ‘Iron Maiden’, since they tend to be pieces of great beauty, full of regmaglypts or flow lines.
One of the people who witnessed this fall was the Soviet painter artist P. I. Medvedev, who was sitting at his window starting a sketch when a fire ball appeared, so he immediately began to draw what he saw. This painting was used in commemorative stamps of the fall of the famous meteorite Sikhote-Alin.
A good specimen to add to your collection, with many of the classic features of this meteorite: traces of quality, flow lines, sculptural shape...
