Another view of Tolstoy’s crazy cane with its bizarre handle. That’s what he’s got there — it is not a trombone.
Haha, I didn’t know that, thanks for the info. I found out that his cane could easily turn into a little chair, how ingenious is that?
I found out about it when I saw him using it in this footage (and also here). That handle doesn’t look much better for one’s hand, but it is strange and eccentric, and when you’re an aging Tolstoy that’s probably what’s important.
