The Story Behind
The Roma or Romany people are eternal travelers, as free as the wind. Their legends celebrate nature and magic powers of talking to animals and reading palms. This scarf evokes the myths, beliefs and symbols of the Roma people. Musicians, tightrope walkers and animals come together under a tree of life surrounded by Roma dancers. The wheel is an omnipresent emblem – in caravan wheels and the wheel of fortune. A detail at the bottom of the scarf depicts the legend of Sara, the Black Madonna of the Roma people.Hermes
