Honoring Vrouwe Holda (Earthmother) at the well. Particularly important this part of year, since she is opening her gates to awaken the flowerchildren and let them emerge rise and grow above the ground again. This picture features the upper part / coat of a custom ordered two-piece dress, inspired by both Russian fairytale paintings and a Viking queen. The result turned out to be a fairytale of its own both fairy-like when worn with the skirt, but tough and even shamanic when worn over pants. The beautiful Theresia van der Zee looks magnificent and strong in this coat, playing her drum and wearing a (borrowed) wolfskin (this wolf died of natural causes, off course!). The dress is made of bordeaux and bright red linen, green dupion silk and a greenish-gold organza at the top of the bodice. The coat is lined with the same red linen as the skirt is made of and the buttons are clad with the same dupion silk as the sleeves.
