‘Mishka’ by paulus, -a, -um

Note on piece: My home country of Russia is exceptionally queerphobic, so I've taken pleasure in transforming the beloved bear mascot of the 1980 Moscow Olympics into pride-flag-waving, be-harnessed little demi-boi. This piece is modelled after the postage stamp featuring the character that year.
