the draft from the well with the star-die on top


Revisiting Romania: Dress and Identity explores how Romanian folk art has been used to express identity and nationhood in Romania in the 19th and 20th centuries, including its use as a political tool during the Ceaușescu years.
Many of the objects were donated in 1957 following an exhibition at the Horniman, which was organised from behind the Iron Curtain.

Time as weather... a cloud is an aggregate, a nebulous set, a multiplicity whose exact definition escapes us....
