RUSSIA | 2018
SECTION OF DRESS: Serene Bird
Anastasia gifts the Red Dress with a Serene bird, to bring protection and positivity to the garment and project.
I choose for my embroidery the very popular in our culture subject. It's a fantastic creature - girl - bird Serene. She have the human head and bird's body. (By the way, in ancient time people in Greece believe in sirens who looks similar. But Serene differs from them)
Serene is a bird of heaven. She lives in woods. She knows the future and all secrets in the world. Her singing is so beautiful and sweet that man who have heard it can’t live any more.
In the past people believed that portrait of Serene can protect its owner from the evil. Especially it's good for women. During more than thousand years Russian’s paint and embroider it. So I decided it will suit for project. I hope you'll like this my modest work.
Today I went to the hills as I promised. I hoped to make more beautiful photo. But it was too cold, and camera didn't want to work. It was minus 35 degrees Celsius. I stay at the foot of Titovskaya hill, an extinct volcano. In this place was primitive man's village thousands of years ago.
