That's a terrific portrait, Peter. Great hat (wherever it's from). Reminds me that I have to get Real Canadians Wearing Real Hats going again.

I don't think that a hat made out of wolf fur is the most common in Russia.
Typical Russian fur hats are made out of (differing in style and price):
muskrat, sable, mink, arctic fox, fox (typically for women), 
sheep/lamb (karakul) and the cheapest ones (usually for men and kids) - 
from rabbit or hare.
